Hard Hat Events

A stable home impacts a family's health and well-being for generations.  Because of our generous supporters, local families have new opportunities, better options, brighter futures, and most importantly safe, affordable places to call home.  

Join us for an inspirational hour to connect with friends and hear from Habitat homeowners who, with your help, are building strength, stability, and self-reliance for their families. The Hard Hat Events provide critical funding to support Habitat’s work to build five affordable homes and complete 25 affordable repair projects in 2024.

Register today to attend this inspirational event where you'll hear directly from homeowner Christie Nohre, whose family moved into their home in 2011. She will share what having a home means for her and her family and how homeownership has impacted their lives. Kasey Morris, Habitat's new Director of Development, will highlight the impact of Aging in Place projects for homeowners. Habitat Board Member, Rick Sansted, and Hard Hat Event Co-Chair, Allie Janssen, will serve as emcees, with a special message to be shared by Lori Anderson.

By supporting Habitat you are building a world where children can be kids – where they can have a yard and a room of their own.  Where they can be free to dream and free to believe that anything is possible.  And the lasting impact of that home on every family member is undeniable.

If you didn't make a gift yet, there's still time to donate to support your neighbors!
