The money comes from the member of Impact100—when volunteers in this women’s organization each donate $1,000, their combined ability to make an impact on the community becomes legendary.

Habitat for Humanity says this will allow them to expand the number of families they help.

Habitat for Humanity Executive Director Wendy Irvin says, “Our strategic plan allows us to increase our housing capacity. We’re going from our normal four builds a year and we’re adding two houses next year. The following year, we will add three additional homes.”

Habitat for Humanity Grand Traverse Region hopes to finish building their next home by the beginning of November.
