Habitat believes that everyone should have a safe, affordable place to call home.
Habitat builds and repairs homes that are a foundation to success for homeowner families and to the Door County community. Families benefit from affordable home ownership, while the community benefits from the redevelopment of neighborhoods and an increase in tax revenue.
Door County Habitat does not give houses or home repairs away. Families must complete “sweat equity” hours helping to build or repair their home, pay a down payment, and make monthly mortgage payments or repair material payments. Homes are made affordable due to the volunteer labor used to build or repair the home and a low-cost mortgage loan provided by Habitat.
Habitat builds homes and sells them to qualified applicants at no profit. We do not give away homes! Homeowners benefit from quality, affordable home ownership, and the community benefits from an increase in tax revenue.
Habitat offers home repair to homeowners so that they continue to live in safe, accessible, decent homes for years to come. These services may include fixing a window or foundations, wintering, minor repair services, or ramps to preserve homes and revitalize neighborhoods.
Ramp Up Door County
Habitat's Ramp Up Door County installs and leases emergency or temporary aluminum ramps to keep residents with a physical and financial need in their homes longer.
Ramp Up Door County has aluminum ramps available for fast installation by Habitat, especially for those residents surprised by an operation or the onset of a mobility issue. The ramp is leased from Door County Habitat for $80 per month. When no longer needed, the ramps would cycle back to Habitat for another person.
Ramp Up Door County lease lowers the overall cost to the homeowner and enables more Door County residents in need to be able to safely access and stay in their homes. People who could not afford a contractor-constructed ramp now have a lower-cost solution to stay safely in their homes throughout an illness or rehabilitation period.
Ramp Up Door County is sponsored by Habitat for Humanity Volunteers, and gifts from 100+Women Who Care Door County, the Door County United Way, Ephraim Moravian Church, Shepherd of the Bay Lutheran Church, St. Paul's Lutheran Church and YOU!
