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, a leaky roof, minor repair services, or ramps to preserve homes and revitalize neighborhoods.
Habitat for Humanity
Habitat for Humanity ReStore is more than just a home improvement store. It’s a community improvement store. Our inventory comes from donations from people just like you. The ReStore accepts many items including new and used furniture, appliances, cabinets, doors, windows, sinks, light fixtures, and so much more. The ReStore keeps many usable items out of landfills and returned to good use.
We can pick up your donation and deliver your purchase. Items are generally priced at significantly lower than retail. When your donated items are sold, the proceeds help more homeowners achieve the strength, stability, and self-reliance they need to build a better life. Your donations and purchases help change lives.
