Strength. Stability. Self-reliance. Through shelter, Kalamazoo Valley Habitat for Humanity helps homeowners and future homeowners build, achieve, and learn all of these things. Habitat’s innovative homeownership program provides opportunities to individuals and families to build and buy affordable homes. Our home repair program meets the critical needs of existing homeowners who seek ways to preserve their homes affordably. As we complete our 34th year of service, our mission and vision have never been clearer: Everyone deserves a decent place to call home.

This infographic  provides a quick look at the highlights of our fiscal year. As a banker, I love to crunch numbers. As a Habitat board member, I’ve learned that numbers alone cannot adequately reflect the success of our programs. Meet some of the people behind the numbers in this newsletter.

Habitat’s work is shared by many. We thank our homeowners who partner with us with persistence, energy, and great faith. We are grateful for the support of our volunteers, funders, donors, and community partners, too. Thank you all.

But, there is more work to do. Everyone can help, everyone can make a difference. With the partnership of more homeowners, the help of more volunteers, and greater financial investment in our mission by funders, sponsors, and donors, Habitat’s impact will grow. How can you help?

Because of you and Habitat for Humanity, more families go to sleep at night in safe, healthy homes. Others are making the journey with your help.

Thank you for your generous investment in our mission.
