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.

Neighborhood Revitalization

Hardworking Milwaukee families are finding it increasingly difficult to afford a place to call home. Nearly 60% of Milwaukee renters are living in unaffordable housing. We're changing that, one neighborhood at a time.

What's Happening

Its award season and were proud to honor Jim Vallicelli as the Milwaukee Habitat for Humanity ReStore Greenfield Volunteer of the Year!

Jim began volunteering at ReStore Walkers Point in 2015 however he has  recently transitioned to help ReStore Greenfield with our metal recycling efforts. Even with the new role Jim has constantly been flexible with his work at ReStore Greenfield. Jim is a dedicated volunteer. In fact, if he misses a shift he always tries to make up the time. He will even work on projects at home; even if it means coming in on a Saturday. Jim has a vast technical knowledge that impresses the staff and he’s a willing and positive leader of groups of volunteers.

Its award season and were proud to honor Patti Sawyer at the Milwaukee Habitat for Humanity ReStore Wauwatosa Volunteer of the Year!

Patti Sawyer is a boss! Patti is ReStore Wauwatosas Saturday cashier and theres little she cant handle--no line too long nor customer too feisty. Pattis cheer and humor are infectious, as the smiles on the faces of Saturday customers always indicate. On site, shes a bridge-builder: training new volunteers and welcoming future Habitat homeowners into the ReStore.  Pattis work with Habitat goes beyond her ReStore shifts, however: shes a constant advocate and active volunteer recruiter as well.

Its award season at Milwaukee Habitat and were proud to honor Josh Keller as the Milwaukee Habitat for Humanity ReStore Walkers Point Volunteer of the Year!

Josh started volunteering in May 2016. He is very passionate about metal recycling, and will work tirelessly to take apart an item to get every last nut, bolt, screw, and piece of copper. Josh comes in several days a week to primarily work in the recycling area (and to eat the pop tarts in Dana’s snack drawer!) and is always willing to lend a hand!
