Building Decent, Affordable Homes
Thank You!

   It is the time of year that many of us reflect and look back a bit more than usual at the many reasons to be thankful. I have so many reasons to be thankful in my personal life and as the new leader at St. Croix Valley Habitat for Humanity, but I have so much more to be grateful for. Habitat has a mission for "a world where everyone has a decent place to live". We are fulfilling that mission, home by home, and it could not be done without the help we receive from the community. 

   In the past year the number of volunteers working on a Habitat homes, in our ReStore in New Richmond, or in our office in River Falls has increased significantly. I am thankful to those volunteers who help us get our job done. I am also thankful for the Board of Directors who have devoted many volunteer hours in guiding and nurturing Habitat to accomplish and increase the capacity of our mission. Our dedicated and committed staff who "pull it all together "also deserve great thanks.

   This organization has been built over many years with deep roots in the St. Croix Valley communities. The former staff and board members deserve to be honored for their work. 

  Since the inception of St. Croix Valley Habitat in 1995 we have built homes in Spring Valley, Ellsworth, Prescott, Elmwood, Hammond, Hudson, Baldwin, Woodville, New Richmond, Glenwood City, and River Falls. Thank you to all of those communities for welcoming Habitat.

   Along with the volunteers, board, and staff we have a community of congregations, vendors, and contributors to be thankful for. A stream of donations and many in-kind gifts provide the resources to build homes, one by one.  Thank you to our vendors, partners, congregations, and contributors.

   The mission of Habitat could not be served without the beautiful and wonderful families we partner with to make their lives better with a safe, affordable, decent home they can call their own. I am thankful for our families because ultimately, that's what we, at Habitat, are all about.
