Seasons greetings everyone,
We, the staff and volunteers at the Cape Girardeau Habitat for Humanity, extend our upmost wishes for a joyous, safe, and peaceful holiday season. While holiday traditions may vary from country to country and coast to coast, we are all connected at this time through are love for our neighbors and our hope for a better world. As Christmas passes, we remember the times when we were pulled in so many different directions with family and work in this hectic season. We have persevered, and got to where we are now. Let us enter 2018, fresh and anew!
At Habitat for Humanity, we build. We build because we believe that everyone, everywhere, should have a healthy, affordable place to call home. More than building homes, we build communities, we build hope and we build the opportunity for families to help themselves. Help empower these families who have yet to achieve their wish of a safe and dignified home. Give the greatest gift by donating today. Your holiday gift will change a family forever!
Wishing you love, peace and joy

A local display has been assembled by members of the Cape Area Housing Committee in the lobby of Wehrenberg Theatres Cape West 14 Cine designed to bring awareness to the plight of those in our community who experience lack of food and shelter on a regular basis. The display can be viewed through November 28th.
Earlier this week, Habitat for Humanity’s Executive Director, Al Stoverink, along with representatives from several other organizations and community leaders, joined together to kick off National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week, presenting the display and shedding light on several issues that affect the homeless community, including mental health, substance use, and food insecurity. Mayor Harry Rediger also read a proclamation, approved by the City of Cape Girardeau, in recognition and support.
While this week is a great opportunity to raise awareness and volunteer, it is important to acknowledge these issues live on year round. Cape Area Habitat for Humanity is proud to partner with over 20 other organizations in being part of the Cape Area Housing Committee, a group actively involved, throughout the year, in promoting housing resources within the Cape Girardeau and surrounding communities. If you are interested in learning more about the Housing Committee or want to be involved in the homelessness solution, please contact us at email@example.com.
United Way of Southeast Missouri has always been one of the most supportive funded partner for Habitat for Humanity Cape Area. On September 2016, we participated on United Ways first Memorial Weekend with their LIVE UNITED event. Amazing team of at&t lend their hands on September 9 and another great team from Bank of Missouri extended their support on September 10. These amazing teams were led by one of our volunteer leader Brad Hughes, with his leadership these two teams were able to finish siding the exterior walls on all three sides of the house. All our volunteers showed such passion and enthusiasm at working on our house inspiring us to keep up with our mission. Our volunteers were all excited and not scared to step up the ladder to put the sidings on those walls.
I was glad to meet our volunteers who were just like me new to the skills of siding. We learned how to measure and cut the sidings and enjoyed our morning learning and helping on the house. Despite the fact that many of us were amateurs we were happy to see what we have accomplished in a very short period of time. Brad and his friend were such an amazing supervisors guiding us on getting the job done right.
Partners as United Ways of Southeast Missouri and companies as at&t and bank of Missouri helps us keep going on fulfilling our goals and mission to provide affordable housing to these amazing well deserving families.
We thank all of our funded partners and volunteers who have extended their time and energy to spend on our houses. Without your support we could never accomplish our goal.
Jim Plassman is a retired parole officer who started to volunteer with Habitat for Humanity Cape Area for past few years. He has worked on three houses built in Cape and Jackson neighborhood so far. He eagerly looks forward to work on the next three houses scheduled to build this year in Cape and Jackson area.
Along with helping build the houses, Jim has been a great asset for Habitat for Humanity ReStore as well. He has been giving ReStore his valuable time and skills to improve store layout in more than one ways. He took the lead in building the processing area wall, building shelves and creating more floor space for different big items as doors, bathroom accessories sinks etc. He also took part in three deconstruction projects we have had this year.
Jim always spreads positivity with his smile and energy. We feel blessed to have him as a volunteer!
Habitat for Humanity ReStore has hosted many DIY projects in the past few months, the most recent being the Shimmering Wall Art project. This fun and easy project was led by Sandra Croule from Ipseity Creative.
This DIY theme was to create a wall decoration out of shims and mirrors (Sandra added another quick DIY of making trays out of the shims as well). We had about 12 kids aged 5-12 who participated in this workshop. According to the kids, painting the shims in different colors and placing them around the mirror was their favorite part of the project!
This project was as much fun to the parents and guardians as it was for the kids. Many shoppers who came with their kids later wanted to join the workshop and enjoyed it as well! The workshop was initially $10, included all materials needed and the kids were able to take the finish product with them.
We have held few other workshops in the past, and we are willing to host more workshops at ReStore if anyone is willing to volunteer with new ideas and creativity. We always have so many materials that can be repurposed or redesigned for better use!
