Building Futures in Our Community

Serving Council Bluffs since 1993, Habitat for Humanity is a non-profit organization that relies on help from volunteers in the community to build homes and improve neighborhoods. Habitat for Humanity of Council Bluffs received a $320,000 grant from the Iowa West Foundation to help meet local housing needs. The grant will support the construction of 12 new homes and complete 30 light-rehabilitation housing projects. The grant money will also assist with remodeling projects, such as adding a ramp to a home or remodeling a bathroom. This often will allow a homeowner to stay in their house another 10-15 years. Habitat for Humanity’s mission fits into the Foundation’s goal to serve as a catalyst for non-profits to effectively plan projects and manage their operations. With this quarter’s $320,000 award, Habitat for Humanity of Council Bluffs has received $2.9 million from Iowa West since the Foundation began its grant program in 1996.
