Habitat preserves as well as builds

Forty-one built houses is what they are known for, but Door County Habitat for Humanity is also making their mark preserving homes. From repairing leaky roofs to installing ramps for physically disabled owners, Habitat’s home preservation projects help people stay in their houses who otherwise may not have been able to afford it. Home preservation project volunteer coordinator Gary Wemmert says over 89 percent of the owners served through the program are 55 years or older.

 

Twelve homeowners were able to stay in their houses thanks to Door County Habitat for Humanity’s efforts last year through the program. Wemmert encourages people who may be eligible for home preservation services or would like to volunteer to contact Door County Habitat for Humanity.
