About This Campaign

Jackie and her grandson have been living without a safe kitchen for over two and a half years. Jackie says the state of her home impacts the way she lives. With no stove, broken cabinets, and a sagging floor, she and her adopted grandson have resorted to cooking with small appliances like crockpots and a microwave. She also misses the small things that turn a house into a home like making a birthday cake, inviting family over for Christmas, and simply sitting at the table to eat a meal with her grandson.

Speaking of the months leading up to being approved for Iowa Valley Habitat for Humanity's Helping Hands program, Jackie says, "I was at my wit’s end. I didn't know what else to do. I just kept thinking, when [my grandson] is older he's going to want to have people over. I have to do something and I can’t get a loan anywhere."

Through Helping Hands, Iowa Valley Habitat for Humanity will reinforce the flooring joists in the kitchen, update the wiring in the kitchen, replace the sub-floor and install new flooring, install new cabinets, replace the kitchen appliances, replace the electrical service, and replace an exterior door. When finished, this home will be safe and act as a pillar of strength and stability for the family.

Jackie says, "Just having a kitchen will be like a new beginning, like a new life for me. And I will appreciate it, [my grandson] will appreciate it."

We're seeking a $10 donation from 350 people, so throw your support behind Jackie and her grandson by making a donation today! Your small gift will make a big impact!

Iowa Valley Habitat for Humanity

Campaign to Support Iowa Valley Habitat for Humanity

We envision a world in which each person has a decent place to live. Locally, we partner with both current and future homeowners, local businesses, residents and social service organizations to construct and renovate safe, decent, affordable housing in Cedar, Iowa, Johnson and Washington Counties.  We also secure affordable financing so that homeowners in our program save thousands of dollars over the life of their mortgage.   Globally, we work to remove barriers to decent housing by supporting Global Village trips and tithing to Habitat for Humanity global builds.  Together with our community, Habitat homeowners gain the strength, stability and self-reliance needed to build better lives and stronger communities.
