43 NEW HOMES
BY 2025

and that's just the beginning

Foundations For Our Future

Northwest Michigan Habitat for Humanity has launched the largest residential home building campaign in our 32 year history! Through the Foundations For Our Future Campaign, our organization is boldly responding to the housing crisis by raising the $5 million in capital needed to construct 43 homes in the community by 2025.

By reaching our $5 million goal, we will significantly increase our capital pool to fund upfront construction costs. As homes are built they are sold to qualified Program Partners, and those sales help to fund the next round of builds. In this way, the Foundations For Our Future campaign will create a sustainable way for our affiliate to permanently increase our yearly home builds from 3-4 per year to 13+.
That's an increase of almost 400%! 


The housing shortage is a well known, complex issue in Northern Michigan. According to recent studies, Emmet County alone needs more than 450 new homes to keep up with demand. Through this campaign, we are tackling nearly 10% of that demand! Plus, by working with our mortgage partners we ensure our homeowners don't pay more then 30% of their annual income to housing costs.

Our affiliate is almost entirely funded through local donations, meaning your support is crucial to our ability to build! Donations to this campaign are reinvested multiple times through the building and selling of new homes. By supporting this campaign you can make a huge impact on our local community!
