We build strength, stability, and self-reliance through shelter.

At Milwaukee Habitat for Humanity, we believe everyone deserves a decent place to live. Together with people in our community, we help families build and improve places to call home. We believe affordable housing plays a critical role in strong and stable communities.

Cost of Home

One in three Milwaukee renters pay half or more of their income on housing. This is unacceptable. Let's make the cost of home something we all can afford.

What's Happening

UPDATE: All three of our Milwaukee County ReStore locations remain closed. We are hoping to reopen our Wauwatosa ReStore after April 24th, when the Governor’s current stay-at-home order is set to expire. We will be enhancing safety measures to include online shopping opportunities with curbside pickup and limiting the number of shoppers in the store at a time. As it becomes safe to do so, we will reopen our other Milwaukee County locations.

We are working with our staff to try and resume donation pick-ups (including the scheduling of future pickups) as soon as possible. If you have donations for ReStore, we will need your support more than ever once we are able to safely reopen. Please consider starting a “spring cleaning” collection in your home or garage where you can store items until we’re able to pick them up.

Visit milwaukeerestore.org for the latest updates on when and how we will resume sales and donations. We sincerely apologize for this inconvenience through these uncertain times.

Happy #GoodNewsTues! Here's a little good news for your day!

Sharon is a Milwaukeean through-and-through, having lived in our community for more than 30 years. Because of people like you, Sharon has a safe, affordable place to call home during this pandemic. After her kids moved out, she downsized and moved into a low-income housing development. It was what she could afford at the time but, unbeknown to her, it wasn’t safe. Every time it rained, water rushed down into her kitchen. She pleaded with her landlord to fix the issue, but it was no use.

After completing hundreds of hours helping to build her home and the homes of her neighbors, Sharon stood in her living room with the keys for the first time. Sharon realized a dream she’d never thought possible. She had become a homeowner.

If it’s within your capacity, please consider making a gift to help more families like Sharon. With one of our largest fundraisers temporarily closed (Habitat ReStore) our friends at Accunet Mortgage stepped up to help. They’re matching all donations up to $25,000. Double your gift today!
