Why Habitat to Empower Michigan?

Our network of more than 50 local Habitats have joined together to further empower one another to rise up, remain nimble, and respond boldly to the unexpected and unprecedented need for safe, affordable housing. We are driven to respond to the needs of people. Thanks to those 30 years, more than 29,000 Michigan households are safely sheltering in place. The Empower Michigan campaign is our opportunity to raise funds statewide to better equip affiliates to stabilize people and housing in their communities. We need YOUR HELP to meet our goal of $5,000,000 to help our affiliates get back on track with partnering with people and households toward their goals.
