2022 Year in Review
Here are just a few of our 2022 accomplishments:
Home Build and Home Repair: We completed two home builds (Sturgeon Bay and Baileys Harbor) and one renovation(Algoma) and our home repair projects, impacting over 25 families in Door County. Home Repairs enable people to remain in their homes safely longer. We completed 22 home repair projects this year and expanded our new ramp rental program to 3 temporary and reusable ramps.
Our ReStore sales continued to be a critical source of revenue to fund our home build and home repair projects.
We completed Deconstruction projects, which include salvaging and repurposing cabinets, appliances, and other home items suitable for resale in our ReStore.
Community Partnerships: We established a new partnership with Door County Housing Partnership, a non-profit organization also dedicated to providing affordable home ownership to the community. We closed on one Housing Partnership home and are repairing to close on our second DCHP home. This will enable us to provide more long-term housing options.
We have a new partnership with Thrivent, a faith-based financial organization, which will help us to further our reach within the community by engaging with faith networks.
Door County Habitat for Humanity and the Door County Housing Partnership closed our first family home purchase in 2022.
Local faith communities supported the home builds this year by providing snacks and lunches.
Children who live in a safe, clean, & decent home are 58% more likely to graduate from a four-year college.
Habitat builds homeowners! Future homeowners learn building skills while assisting on their homes, earning sweat equity hours.
90 percent of surveyed Habitat homeowners said they could not have owned a home without help from Habitat. Our families purchase their homes with low cost mortgage from Habitat.
When doing deconstructs, volunteers remove usable items from homes or businesses slated for demolition or remodel. Deconstructions reduce landfill while providing materials to sell in the ReStore.
Home Repairs like this accessibility ramp enable people to remain in their homes safely longer. We completed 2w home repair projects this year and are planning to expanded the opportunities to serve with our RampUp rental program.
