We are thrilled to announce that Habitat for Humanity of Kent County has been named 2013 Habitat Affiliate of the Year for the state of Michigan!


This award recognizes a landmark year for us: In celebration of our 30th anniversary in 2013, we completed our final home in the Wealthy Heights neighborhood, and at the same time we launched the Building Blocks Campaign, our initiative to serve 200 families in two years on the West Side of Grand Rapids. We have worked hard to engineer a major change over the past few years, expanding our emphasis from single properties to entire neighborhoods. Both the Wealthy Heights project and the Building Blocks Campaign illustrate this evolution, and we are proud that these efforts have been successful!


We are proudest, however, of all the individuals, churches, and businesses—all the volunteers, donors, and partner families—that inspire our work and make it possible. Thank YOU for your role in a landmark year. We hope you'll celebrate with us!
