With just over one month before she has a home to call her own, Kendra Bilodeau is working hard to make sure Door County Habitat for Humanity can find other families that can be just as lucky. Bilodeau gave into her godmother’s wishes earlier this and applied to be a partner family with Door County Habitat for Humanity only to find her time on the waiting list would be short: she would be number 40. Since then, Bilodeau has logged 100-plus hours over her sweat equity commitment to the organization as she helps Habitat volunteers build her home and counsel others considering applying. Bilodeau hopes she is the gentle nudge for family number 41 just like the volunteers have coached her through projects at her future home this year.
With painting next on the schedule, Door County Habitat for Humanity’s 40th home is about two weeks behind due to a late start and construction restraints. The organization hopes the home is dedicated and ready to be moved into on October 26.
