“This is for you son.”

Leading up to Giving Tuesday (November 29th) we’re debuting a collection of heart-warming stories from long-time Milwaukee Habitat homeowners who’ve recently paid off their homes. To celebrate, families burned their mortgage documents – each proudly labeled “PIF” – Paid in Full.

“This house right here is for you son,” Teresa emphatically exclaims. “This, I will leave for my kids.” Her oldest son, a doctorate student, stands proud, filming his mother as she tears up and throws her mortgage into the fire. 

You can help more families achieve this milestone by making your Giving Tuesday gift today. Giving Tuesday – celebrated on November 29th – is a global holiday to give back. Your gift will give more local families the opportunity to invest in the stability of homeownership.
