Habitat Builds a House


The Wisconsin Rapids Area Habitat for Humanity was formed in 1992. It is served by a local board of directors.

We are affiliated with Habitat for Humanity International, a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing ministry seeking to make decent shelter a matter of conscience and action.

Habitat invites people of all backgrounds, races, and religions to build houses together in partnership with families in need. Together, we make the world a better place!

Did you know...

  • It Takes a Community
    Wisconsin Rapids Area Habitat for Humanity partners with families in need, volunteer workers, and local businesses to build an affordable house.
  • How We Build More Houses
    The homeowners' monthly mortgage payments, along with material and financial donations and volunteer workers, are used to build still more Habitat houses.
  • Habitat Homes Are Not Free
    Habitat houses are sold to partner families at no profit and are financed with no-interest loans. This helps families break the cycle of generational poverty.
  • We've Built 19 Houses in the Area
    It's true—we've built 19 houses in the Wisconsin Rapids area so far. We've also taken on numerous repairs and upgrade projects.

Will You Join Us?

It takes a lot of volunteers, business partners, and donors to accomplish building just one house for a family in need. We're looking to build our 20th. Please contact us if you're interested in helping in any capacity. We're not asking for a commitment, just a show of interest. As we ramp up for the next build we'll contact you to see if you're still interested. If so, great! If not, we'll wish you well and carry on.
