This fall, Habitat for Humanity of Clinton County will dedicate our 35th home. Our organization would not be able to build homes without the generosity and the commitment of our community businesses and organizations. They have been loyal partners in our efforts to provide good, affordable housing to deserving families.

Each summer, Len Perkins and Wendell Compton exceed their goal to raise funds through our golf outing. We are fortunate to have the leadership of both of these men. This summer, the golf outing had 51 hole sponsors and we want to thank these sponsors for their support:
