Dear Habitat for Humanity of St. Charles County Supporters,

2020 brought its share of BLESSINGS to Habitat amidst the challenges.

  • We purchased 5 lots for construction of homes, and for lives to be transformed.
  • Our ReStore team ALL stayed healthy and donations more than doubled.
  • Our first, virtual fundraising gala exceeded expectations.
  • Corporate donors were generous and flexible in their funding.
  • We selected two families for partnership and two homes are under construction.

WE DIDN’T STOP.  WE DIDN’T GIVE UP.
WE RESPONDED TO THE INCREASED NEED FOR
SAFE, HEALTHY AND AFFORDABLE HOMES.

It is now the long-awaited year of 2021.  The year that we placed so much hope in during the dark and uncertain days of 2020.  People told us that nothing would change dramatically or quickly in 2021, but we remained positive.  To us, 2021 brought promise, hope and a renewed spirt of determination to thrive.  Well, here we are, and Habitat St. Charles is not going to change our optimism about what the year will hold.  We believe it DOES HOLD PROMISE, IT DOES HOLD HOPE, and IT WILL BE A YEAR WHERE PEOPLE THRIVE.

To that end, here is what’s happening at your Hometown Habitat:

  • Our 2020-2021 Partner Families are performing sweat equity and taking financial education classes to prepare to purchase their homes this Spring. Read more here!
  • We are currently building our 90th and 91st homes in St. Charles City.
  • Applications for our new 2021 home builds will be accepted Feb 1-28. Click here to apply!
  • The job-site is open and we have volunteer opportunities here.
  • The ReStore is open to the public Wednesday-Saturday 10am-6pm. The donation bay is open during the same hours. Masks are required.
  • Our admin office is open from 8:30 – 4:30 Monday – Friday. Masks are required.
  • If you are a current Habitat homeowner and wish to communicate with Habitat regarding your mortgage, please email homeownership@habitatstcharles.org or call (636) 978-5712 x 117.

Please continue to stay engaged with us on social media as we will provide updates on dedications, volunteer opportunities and events. Now more than ever, your financial support for our shared mission of affordable homeownership is needed. Donations are accepted through our website at www.habitatstcharles.org. Become a Habi-Heart donor and join our monthly giving program today by clicking here.

Lastly, we want to share these words from Jonathon Reckford, Habitat for Humanity CEO. “May those of us who are merely inconvenienced remember those whose lives are at stake. May we who have no risk factors remember the most vulnerable. May we who settle in for quarantine at home remember those who have no home. As fear grips our country, let us choose love.” Habitat has always chosen to embody these values, and the steps we are taking now are taken in this same vein. May you be healthy, may you be well, and may you and yours feel God’s love around you.”

We value your support as we all face these challenges together.

In Partnership now more than ever,
Michelle Woods
Executive Director

Home Sweet Home

Just weeks after his wedding day, Nathan Franklin was involved in a golf cart accident and suffered a traumatic brain injury. Though he is currently confined to a wheelchair, with the help of his wife, Melissa, he continues to re-learn how do simple tasks. Nathan and Melissa spent almost three years living in a small apartment with little room for Nathan to move around in his wheelchair. Even though the apartment was deemed accessible, their living conditions didn’t meet their needs. Nathan couldn’t access areas in the apartment. Nathan’s wheelchair couldn’t fit in the bathroom, leaving him to brush his teeth in the hallway. The next step in Nathan’s treatment was home environment therapy. To continue to make successful progress, the Franklins knew they needed a change.
