August 2020, Homeowner Celebration: One of the great satisfactions of working with Habitat for Humanity of Northern Fox Valley families is to see the transformative affect it creates. Habitat not only addresses the need for affordable housing, which provides new economic stability for a family, it also creates wealth. In August 2020, one of our homeowners made their last mortgage payment. They have achieved the American dream of owning their own home. This is an outstanding accomplishment!
