Help us unlock the door to a home for a veteran this year at St. Croix Valley Habitat for Humanity’s gala. We’re raising funds at our 3rd annual gala Steel Toes & Stilettos: All Roads Lead Home, March 23 to build a special home for a veteran.
Nearly 1.5 million veterans pay at least 50 percent of their income on housing. Our most recent veterans who served following 9/11 have returned to a slow-growing economy, coupled with rising housing costs, making the transition to civilian life even harder. Nearly half of female veterans who are single moms spend more than 30 percent of their income on housing. And about a quarter of the 2.5 million veterans heading households are at least 55 years of age and have housing cost burdens.
As we recognize the challenges veterans face, our goal is to build a home for a veteran/family to thank them for their service and help offset the unique costs they encounter as they settle back into civilian life. Join us for a very special gala event, March 23 at Tattersall Distilling in River Falls, WI.
