Habitat for Humanity International is a nonprofit ministry that seeks to eliminate poverty housing and homelessness and to make decent shelter a matter of conscience and action.
Through volunteer labor and donations of money and materials, Habitat builds and rehabilitates simple, decent houses with the help of the homeowner (partner) families. Habitat houses are sold to partner families at no profit and financed with affordable loans. The homeowners’ monthly mortgage payments are used to build still more Habitat houses.
Horsch & Miller had the privilege of providing the plumbing and heating on two of these homes in 2006 and 2007 with the contractor, Carmel Builders of Menomonee Falls. Both of these homes were built in only one week during the Builders’ Blitz.
