The lack of a suitable partner family and the weather could force Door County Habitat for Humanity to add extra work days each week or go deeper into the fall for its home build. The organization is waiting on the final review of several potential partner families after close calls forced them to direct others to financial counseling before they would be eligible. Executive Director David Van Dyke says they are four to six weeks behind where they usually are in the process.
Despite the delays, Van Dyke is still confident they can get the home built before many volunteers leave the area and winter returns. Door County Habitat for Humanity is still lining up volunteers for what will be their 41st home build.
