There’s No Place Like Home for the Holidays for Melissa and Her Family
We all carry a set of keys with us every day. They unlock the door to that special place we call “home.” Imagine if your home was not a place of sanctuary. Imagine your home was dangerous, bitterly cold, or cost more than half of your total monthly income—making buying essentials like food difficult. This is the reality for many families in our community just like Melissa’s.
It takes your support to help provide Melissa, and families like hers, with safe and affordable homes. Your donation today will help purchase the materials necessary to build the home that will provide the key for Melissa and her family.
You can help build stronger neighborhoods, stronger communities, and a stronger society by supporting Habitat for Humanity La Crosse Area this holiday season.
And there is so much more to do in 2018! You can help other families just like Melissa’s build and purchase their own homes, so they too can be home for the holidays in 2018.
P.S. Remember, your gift is vital in helping make a house a home for families right here in our communities.
Help provide a home for the Holidays
Meet Melissa and her three children, Dayton, Skylar and Camille. Melissa and her family are currently living in a rodent and mold infested apartment. They are working with Habitat La Crosse to build their new safe and affordable home, built with the help of hundreds of volunteers, at the corner of Fifth and Mississippi Streets in La Crosse. Melissa and her family will be buying their new home from Habitat in 2018. Melissa is very excited to be partnering with Habitat. “I just would love a place that my children and I can love to call home,” she says. When asked why she wanted to be a Habitat Homeowner, Melissa said, “I would love to get my hands dirty and have a part in something that is a blessing for a lot of people who are in the same or similar situation as my family.”
