Manitowoc County Habitat for Humanity Charity Profile

Manitowoc County Habitat for Humanity is a local affiliate for Habitat for Humanity International and coordinates all aspects of Habitat home building in Manitowoc County — fundraising, building site selection, family selection and support, house construction and mortgage servicing. It is an ecumenical Christian ministry that seeks to eliminate poverty housing and create affordable housing in safe and stable environments.

Habitat is not a give away program. Rather, homeowners are actively participating in the building project at various levels. The houses are sold to families at no profit and are financed with affordable, interest free mortgages. In addition to a down payment and monthly mortgage payments, homeowner families invest hundreds of hours of their own labor — sweat equity — into the building of their own Habitat home. Their labor reduces the cost of the homes, increases the pride in ownership, allows families to learn skills that help them maintain their homes, and transforms them into positive, active, giving members of their community.

Houses are built using volunteer labor and private funds raised from the support of local businesses, churches, individual donors and fundraising events. The homeowners’ monthly mortgage payments also go into a revolving fund that is used to build more houses.
