We are not able to accomplish our mission of building homes, building hope on our own.

It is through our many local and national partnerships that we are able to accomplish our goals. 2012 was a fantastic year that saw us strengthen our existing partnerships along with developing many new ones.

For the past couple of years we have been blessed to have a great group of volunteers from the Walmart on old us 20 join us one Saturday a month on the build site. Not only do they volunteer their time on the build site, they graciously donate funds and gifts-in-kind on a regular basis.

For 25 years, HomeCrest Cabinets donated all of the cabinets for our new home constructions. That is 150 houses at a value of over $100,000. That is alot of cabinets! They have also donated cabinet fronts, drawer boxes, and other items to the ReStore.

Since 1999, the Whirlpool Corporation has donated a range and an energy star qualified refrigerator to every Habitat home built in North America. We have built 69 homes in Elkhart County since the partnership began,
at a value of over $1,000 a house.

Signtech Sign Services, located in Goshen, has provided signage and consultation over the years. This past year they have been especially helpful in producing our new sold signs for each new Habitat home, vehicle graphics, and signage for the office & ReStore.

We are so thankful to all of our great partners for their help in building homes, building hope throughout Elkhart County. Thank You!
