St. Croix Valley Habitat for Humanity is dedicating its 58th home since 1996.  Community is welcome to attend, please see the notice on the left. This is the 7th of 18 homes of the Eco-Village. This project is projected to be complete in 2015. 

This spring, we anticipate launching the Brush with Kindness Program, a home rehab program for low and moderate income families, which we anticipate will help hundreds of families in the St Croix Valley Habitat's service area. 

Brush with Kindess has shown to be a program that strengthens, builds, and revitalizes communities. 

St. Croix Valley Habitat for Humanity has already helped 85 adults and 177 children within our 57 quality homes in local cities throughout the St. Croix and Pierce Counties and also supported construction of 40 homes internationally.
 
Thank you, community, volunteers, and family partners, for all the support in the past year. You have made building safe, decent, affordable homes a reality in our community.
