Every Tuesday, you can count on Kendra Bilodeau being at the site of her dream home. Bilodeau, along with her children Matthew and Elizabeth, are this year’s partner family with Door County Habitat for Humanity’s 40th home build. From putting tar paper on her future roof to laying down flooring, there has not been much Bilodeau has not done to help the group of volunteers building the home. She is thankful for the time the volunteers are spending and for getting her outside of her comfort zone.
Project Supervisor Chuck Stone has worked with a lot of partner families during his time as a volunteer with Door County Habitat for Humanity but says this year has been even more special.
Stone says it has been the building boom in Door County and not the weather that has slowed down volunteers as contractors for specific parts of the project have been hard to get. Bilodeau hopes more families in need of a “hand-up” hear her story and apply for future Door County Habitat for Humanity home builds.
