About This Campaign
At the same time, in locations around the world, everyone is looking for ways to bring light and hope to these challenging times. We are never more human than when we come together in an hour of need.
Greater Green Bay Habitat for Humanity has lived these truths every day for more than 30 years. Together, we have accomplished so much. And now we need your help more than ever.
Our neighbors and our communities have been hit hard by the economic shocks of COVID-19. The world already was experiencing a housing crisis. COVID-19 has revealed its extent — and added to its urgency.

Campaign to Support Greater Green Bay Habitat for Humanity
Greater Green Bay Habitat for Humanity is part of a global, nonprofit housing organization operated on Christian principles that seeks to put God’s love into action by building homes, communities and hope. Greater Green Bay Habitat for Humanity is dedicated to eliminating substandard housing locally and worldwide through constructing, rehabilitating and preserving homes; by advocating for fair and just housing policies; and by providing training and access to resources to help families improve their shelter conditions. Habitat for Humanity was founded on the conviction that every man, woman and child should have a simple, durable place to live in dignity and safety, and that decent shelter in decent communities should be a matter of conscience and action for all.
- As a result of COVID-19 over 300 million people in 42 states have been asked to stay at home through a myriad of shelter-in-place/safer at home orders. The scope and coordination of these orders are unprecedented and have led to a near halt of the US economy and over 16 million people losing their jobs.
- In addition to the economic impact, these directives have also shined light on underlying housing issues that many Americans face.
- Low income households are particularly at risk as a result of their economic instability and their concentration in service industry and other hourly jobs that are at risk as a result of COVID-19 disruptions.
- In an estimated 12 million of these households at least one contributing member work in an at-risk industry.
- The economic crisis created by efforts to contain COVID-19 has placed unprecedented stress on the financial sustainability of Habitat affiliates, resulting in limited support for its homeowners at the time when they need it most.
- Everyone has been affected by this global public health crisis and the accompanying economic shocks.
- Everyone has been forced to consider the fundamental importance of home. Having safe, decent and affordable shelter.
