Habitat for Heroes

Habitat for heroes logo


“Habitat for Heroes” is an important initiative at Habitat for Humanity of the Greater La Crosse Region. This program was born out of the collaboration of local veterans, veteran’s family members, local businesses, and veteran organizations including the La Crosse Vet Center, Logistics Health, the UW-La Crosse Student Veterans Association, the La Crosse Area Veterans Mentor Program, the La Crosse County Veterans Services, and the local VFW. All of the supporters have the same goal in mind; create a path for veterans towards homeownership.


  • To encourage interaction, skill development, and support for veterans through volunteerism.
  • To continue to build homes for veterans and their families.
