2021 habitat for Humanity partner family selected

CADILLAC — Wexford-Osceola Habitat for Humanity is pleased to announce that after months of evaluations, interviews, and hard work our 2021 Partner Family has been chosen.

WOHFH would like to welcome Kasey Lilly into the program. Kasey and her 3 children meet all the criteria to become our next habitat homeowner in Wexford County. Kasey along with her family are ready to engage in our program that consists of classes, sweat equity hours and construction activities leading to acquiring a mortgage and becoming a Habitat Homeowner.

WOHFH’s homeownership program is a hand up and not a handout and the organization looks forward to working with Kasey and her children to fulfil the dream of home ownership.

"If we have learned anything from the COVID-19 crisis, it is that our ability to thrive during a shelter-in-place mandate is directly tied to the safety and stability of our housing," said director Amy Gibbs. "Problems such as leaky roofs, mold, insufficient insulation, and high rent payments threaten the health, safety, and financial security of families and cause further concern beyond the risk of contracting COVID-19."

WOHFH strives to help with safe and affordable housing for residents in our community.

Please call 231-468-1096 or email Amy at director@wexfordhabitat.org with any questions.
