During the month of April, a sense of excitement filled the air as word of Habitat Detroit’s “Home is the Key” campaign spread across the city. Each week, the generosity of our donors, sponsors, and volunteers contributed to the perfect blend of hope and community that led us straight into the campaign’s grand finale on April 22nd: A memorable Home is the Key block party event!

On this fun-filled day, we combined forces with our sponsors and volunteers to tackle various homeowner projects right in our community. From renovating properties, to building foundational walls for a new home, to fostering abundance in a local community garden, we were certainly not short of opportunities to make a difference while showing the world the amount of power a home can have—for those in it, and far beyond.

The joy that was felt between homeowners and volunteers on this day was certainly a cause for celebration, so we topped off the event with live music, carnival games, food trucks, and more family-friendly activities for our homeowners, volunteers, and sponsors to enjoy. Having the ability to build and rehabilitate these properties was a gift to all who came to participate, and everyone present was able to learn of a home’s ability to close the wealth gap, provide safety and stability for families, and create prosperous futures for communities at large.

“It is powerful to see what can be accomplished when people come together,” said Stephanie Osterland, CEO of Habitat for Humanity Detroit. “Local businesses, community partners and neighbors rallied behind this community’s transformation and made it happen. For the individuals and families who call Morningside home, the significance of that effort is immeasurable.”

We are so grateful for all who came out to participate and celebrate our Home is the Key campaign. Habitat Detroit’s efforts would not be possible without your support, and your life-changing service and generosity fueled our celebrations at the block party and beyond. With you, the future is bright!
