This is an unprecedented moment where every one of us has been forced to deeply consider the fundamental importance of home — of having safe, decent and affordable shelter.
At the same time, everyone is looking for ways to bring light and hope to these challenging times. We are never more human than when we come together in an hour of need.
Lake Agassiz Habitat for Humanity has lived these truths every day for nearly 30 years. Together, we have accomplished so much. And now we need your help more than ever.
Our neighbors and our communities have been hit hard by the economic shocks of COVID-19. As families face the public health crisis and the devastating effects of financial instability, Habitat for Humanity is needed now more than ever. And — now more than ever — we need you. Together, we can help families build back.
Will you make a gift now and help us come through this pandemic swinging hammers and raising roofs?
The need of our neighbors has never been more pronounced.
They need us to help them build back. And, with your support, Habitat for Humanity stands ready to stand alongside these families. And not just stand, but build.
Build security and stability. Build back the economy. Reconnect communities. Create hope.
For nearly 30 years, that’s exactly what we’ve done: build homes, communities and hope.

With the loss of our annual Tour de Habitat fundraiser, scheduled for April 23rd, and the temporary closing of our ReStore on March 19th without a reopening date in sight, we fear that we may not be able to build alongside the two great families this year. While we hope to have the Tour later this year and are working hard to make sure ReStore comes back stronger than ever, we’re already missed out on over $100,000 in funding. Every month the store is closed, we lose $40,000-$50,000 in gross revenue.
We’ve determined that fundraising an additional $160,000 will provide the necessary resources to weather this storm AND fill our fundraising gap for the two homes we plan to build this year. Will you help us fill that gap?
