For the first time in five years, Door County Habitat for Humanity will build north of Sturgeon Bay for its home build. The organization’s board of directors approved the family of Douglas Marvin to be its 43rd partner for a home built by volunteers. Door County Habitat for Humanity is working with the Door County Housing Trust to find a building site for the home in northern Door County so Marvin can keep his two sons at Gibraltar Area Schools. The challenge is the opposite of what the organization has had in the past when it had a site but could not find a qualified family. Executive Director David Van Dyke is happy Door County Habitat for Humanity will be able to extend its reach.
Van Dyke says it will need to tap into northern Door County’s volunteer base to make the build a success as many of its workers live in the southern part of the area. Door County Habitat for Humanity will break ground on its 43rd home this spring.
