Strengthening Families, Building Community
A Campaign for Lakeshore Habitat for Humanity
West Michigan is facing an unprecedented lack of affordable housing due to scarce housing stock, options too distant from jobs and childcare, and home prices that are too high.
Meet the Byrds
After a job loss during the recession in 2009, the Byrd family faced inability to pay bills, food insecurity, and homelessness. Quincy reached out to us and discovered a road to affordable homeownership built on dignity. Today, the Byrd family is thriving. Awakened to the need for more affordable housing solutions in the Holland area, Quincy was inspired to run and serve as a city council member. He now has a direct role in creating opportunities for families who find themselves where he was ten years ago.
Did you know that in Ottawa County . . .
Since 1990, Lakeshore Habitat has been serving families in Ottawa and parts of Allegan County through our affordable home building and repair ministry. Our vision is a community where everyone has a decent place to live, so we are working hard to increase our capacity.
Introducing . . . the Vista Green Development
We have partnered with Jubilee Ministries and have jointly secured property on 36th Street in Holland on which we will develop a mixed-income community of 42 affordable units.
We seek to raise $2.4 million for the Vista Green Development through our Strengthening Families, Building Community campaign. With your help, our success will demonstrate that through love, faith, and support, all Lakeshore residents can enjoy the dignity of a safe place to raise their family.
You can support this campaign through:
A one-time cash gift
A multiple-year pledge commitment (may be paid over a three-year period)
A gift of appreciated assets (i.e., stock)
The donation of an appreciated asset (e.g., property, an automobile, collectible)
An estate gift
Lakeshore Habitat for Humanity is a qualified 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Accordingly, your charitable gift is tax-deductible to the full extent of state and federal law.
What a Difference a Home Can Make
From providing a source of wealth to influencing health and educational outcomes to contributing to community development, homeownership has long-lasting, life-changing impacts.
