Donate to Our Buy a Foot CampaignBuy a Foot biggerBlueprints

When you decide to build a house, you need to start with blueprints. The blueprints detail out plans for the build – ensuring that it is completed successfully and is stable for the future.

At Rice County Habitat for Humanity, we believe that safe and healthy living conditions are blueprints for a happy and healthy life. We’re proud that the work of our organization helps lay the blueprints for our Partner Families to experience a better future.

We hope you’ll join us in laying the blueprints for a better future for our 2016 Partner Families by donating to our Buy a Foot campaign. For only $89, you can “buy” a square foot of one of our houses.

Read more about Buy a Foot and please consider donating to our 2016 b build season through this campaign.
