Building Lot for 2015!
Winneshiek County Habitat for Humanity announces that Calmar will be the site of its next house.
“We haven’t built in Calmar since 2002 so we were pleased when the opportunity came to purchase a lot there. It’s always our goal to build in various locations around the county,” stated Gus Johnson, Executive Director. Construction will begin in fall of 2015.
To date, Winneshiek Habitat has built 28 homes in all communities in the county, except Frankville and Fort Atkinson. The affiliate is especially interested in acquiring lots in these communities but would welcome obtaining lots anywhere in Winneshiek County.
Anyone interested in donating or selling a reasonably priced lot in these towns or elsewhere in the county should contact Gus Johnson, Executive Director at 563-382-1802 or firstname.lastname@example.org More...

Winneshiek County Habitat for Humanity (WCHFH) is a locally run affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing organization. The goal for Habitat for Humanity is to work in partnership with people in need to build and renovate decent, affordable housing. The houses are sold to those in need at no profit and with no interest charged.
Volunteers provide much of the labor and partner families themselves invest hundreds of hours of labor "sweat equity" into building their homes and the homes of others. Their mortgage payments go into a revolving Fund for Humanity that is used to build more houses, both in the US and Guatemala, the international partner nation for the Winneshiek Habitat affiliate.
