Lake Agassiz Habitat for Humanity makes a difference every day by building homes and hope in Cass and Clay Counties. Now more than ever, your generous support means the world to families in our community who want to give their children a safe place to call home.
Five years ago, April Nelson and her two children escaped violent relationship and were living in a shelter. April was unsure if she’d ever be able to give her children a safe place to call home.
Your generosity makes it possible for the Nelson family, and others like it to experience the difference that a simple, affordable – and permanent home can have in their lives and in the lives of the generations to come.
“Habitat is amazing! One of my biggest dreams has been to own my own house,” April says. “This house gave my family a stability we’ve never been able to have before. My kids have a yard to play in and rooms of their own. And I know we are all safe at night.”
