One neighborhood. One hundred homes. One goal: Serve the most families in our history.
Milwaukee looks very different since we built our first home in 1984. Today, hardworking families are finding it increasingly difficult to afford a place to call home. Property values have fallen dramatically, particularly in areas of lower income families. At the same time, the price to rent is higher than ever. Nearly 60% of Milwaukee renters are living in unaffordable housing.
Habitat for Humanity breaks ground on Midtown 100
Watch: Milwaukee Habitat breaks ground on a plan to build, rehab and repair 100 homes in the Midtown neighborhood in just three years.
Midtown 100 combats our city’s affordable housing crisis by more than doubling the number of families Habitat serves each year.
