Veterans Build is Habitat for Humanity’s national initiative to provide housing solutions along with volunteer and employment opportunities to U.S. veterans, military service members and their families. Habitat for Humanity of Wausau recently became a Veterans Build affiliate, pledging to build, educate, employ, engage and/or honor area veterans.

As our first Veteran Build project, Habitat for Humanity of Wausau assembled and distributed Home Maintenance & Safety Kits for veterans in our community, working with the American Legion Montgomery-Plant-Dudley Post 10 in Wausau to identify veterans most in need.  In collaboration, the organizations assembled and delivered the kits during “She Served Week” in September 2021 to engage and honor veterans in our community and to thank them for their service.

Habitat for Humanity of Wausau had the pleasure of joining Veterans Weekly Cup of Coffee in November 2021 to thank the 58 attending veterans for their service to our country and to treat them to a cup of coffee and a piece of pie. It was such a great opportunity to meet these amazing veterans and hear their stories! Several of our Habitat volunteers who are also veterans joined us and thanks to all veterans for your service and sacrifice!
