Wolf River Habitat for Humanity was officially incorporated on December 12, 1997; and our affiliation with Habitat for Humanity International was approved August 1, 1998. Then, as committees were formed, contacts made with churches and other organizations of the area, and fundraising events took place, many volunteers came to help with renovation of the Lutheran Indian Mission, located north of Gresham. That building (on the National Registry of Historic Places) became our first Habitat office, warehouse, and workshop. Groundbreaking for our first Habitat home took place April 22, 2000, on a donated lot in the Town of Wescott. We are especially thankful for the Christian principles on which Habitat was founded, many answers to prayer, wonderful volunteers, and the eleven homes that have been finished (three in Menominee County, and eight in Shawano County.)
We are a non-profit ecuminical Christian housing ministry that seeks to eliminate substandard housing from the community by partnering with low-income families to build or renovate adequate, affordable housing that is sold to the family without profit or interest.
