Door County Habitat for Humanity Takes a New Approach, Apostles and Facebook

Door County’s chapter of Habitat for Humanity will start a different style of home-building project this coming summer. The Apostles Build, a new program that intends to bring 12 churches or groups of churches together to build a Habitat home in Door County, is 2/3 enrolled according to Sturgeon Bay Moravian Church pastor Reeder Herrick.

“Each church has to come up with one-twelfth of the cost – about $7,500 – and help provide one-twelfth of the volunteers to build the house,”  says Herrick. “We are doing well. We have eight of the 12 apostles filled and several others are likely to be joining us very soon. And, we have already received some payments and some churches are already planning fundraisers.”

For information on the Apostles Build program, contact Herrick at 920.743.6218.

The local chapter of Habitat for Humanity has been building homes in Door County for more than 15 years, recently breaking ground on their 27th house. In order to meet their goals in Door County, three homes for three partner families each year, Habitat needs to raise $275, 000 on an annual basis. To do so, Habitat urges you to join their “Three Houses Campaign” to directly address funding needed and keep Habitat building in Door County. If you can give $10 or $10,000, please contact the Habitat office or at 920.743.2869 today, use their secure online donation form, or mail a donation directly to DCHFH, 57 N. 12th Ave. Sturgeon Bay, WI 54235.
