New home for Maumee Valley Habitat for Humanity

New Home for Maumee Valley Habitat for Humanity
1308 Conant St.
(Formerly Carter Lumber)

We're very excited to announce that on August 10, 2011, we closed on the purchase of 1308 Conant Street! This location, which includes a 19,000 sq. ft. building and two large out-buildings, will provide space for our headquarters, ReStore, and warehousing.

This purchase will not only allow us to fully recover from last October's fire, but also to expand our capacity in order to serve even more families and transform neighborhoods in Lucas County.

The new central location will allow us to easily commute to all our service areas and to accommodate our dedicated staff and volunteers. Having all staff, materials, and operations in one location for the first time should create greater efficiencies for our organization and all of our programs.

The ReStore will become operational first, with an opening around November 1 of this year. Offices for the rest of the staff and volunteers will be constructed after ReStore is opened.

We've been very grateful for the depth of the support we have received from the community during the past year. We would like to thank you for your continued concern for our mission and our ministries. We look forward to continuing to partner with you to help further fulfill our vision of providing everyone safe, decent, and affordable housing.
