Milwaukee Habitat for Humanity breaks ground on affordable housing development

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) – Habitat for Humanity is breaking ground on its largest project in Milwaukee.

Habitat plans on building, rehabilitating, and repairing 100 homes in the Midtown neighborhood.

They say this will give the neighborhood the highest concentration of affordable, single-family homes built in Milwaukee since World War II.

“Because we know that safe, affordable housing is more than just having a sturdy roof over one’s head, because families when they spend 40%, 50% or even 70% of their income just to pay the rent, there’s not much left over for the rest of life,” said Milwaukee Habitat for Humanity Executive Director Brian Sonderman.

The goal is to have all the houses completed over the next three years.

Habitat for Humanity has served more than 1,000 families in the Milwaukee area in the past 32 years.
