bringing families and friends together.

Habitat homeownership contributes to healthier families, greater success in school, more economic opportunity for families, and revitalized neighborhoods. For twenty-five years, Manhattan Area Habitat for Humanity has worked alongside community partners to help families on their homeownership journey. We have built 29 homes in Riley and Pottawatomie counties and only continue to grow. A home is more than four walls and a roof. It’s a place to rest, a place to learn and a place that can shape your future.

The amount it costs to purchase a hammer and nails for a future homeowner to help build their own home. 
Lighting to help young students focus on homework. 
The amount it costs to provide a window for a child to look out and wish upon a star. 
Yard where children can run and play safely. 
The cost of a kitchen stove where nutritious family meals can be cooked.

Ogden Volunteering Day at The Way

Ogden Volunteering Day at The Way

  • July 13th 2022
Be among the first to see inside The Way Early Learning Center, the new facility connected to The House Cafe in Ogden, KS near Build 31! Additionally, help us clean it up after the completion of construction.
Manhattan Area Habitat for Humanity is facilitating an Ogden Volunteer Day and we want you to be a part whether you’re from Ogden or the surrounding area.
 
We’ll roll our sleeves up and work hard from 5-7pm and then eat barbecue together, likely Ogden’s Backyard Bar-B-Que, on the front porch at The House Cafe (or in the Teen Center if it’s too hot to be outside).
Over dinner we’ll facilitate a Front Porch Chat around the assets, concerns, and dreams that you and your neighbors have for your neighborhood. This is less about hearing from Habitat and more about hearing from one another.
Let's build community and trust that promotes connection, collaboration, and inspiration together!

Beads to Build Homes

Beads to Build Homes

  • September 23rd-25th 2022

This fall we are inviting you to donate Beads to Build Homes. This is a white elephant sale of donated jewelry. BTW, a white elephant sale is a collection of used items being sold, much akin to a yard sale or garage sale, often as a fundraiser for a cause...like ours! We are now collecting jewelry donations from people like you. This can be any kind of jewelry as long as it is not broken. If you have un-used jewelry that you would like to donate to us please call Lizzy at (816) 982-5824. Then come find new-to-you jewelry when we sell it at Praisefest 2022! Beads to Build Homes will help fund Build 31.
