Every gift, no mater how large or small, helps build a better Manitowoc County.

From Two Creeks to Kiel, from Collins to Cleveland, Habitat works alongside local homeowners who just want to build a better life for themselves and their families. We are able to help create these life-changing opportunities because of the generosity of compassionate friends because of you.
