Lend Habitat a hand

The Western Lake Superior Habitat for Humanity group is letting members of the public know you don’t have to be a carpenter to help families get into needed housing. Seriously: No super-handy skills required.

Habitat will offer an open house 5:30-7 p.m. April 4 at its new headquarters at 1621 Broadway St. in Superior. People can come in and talk with staff about their skills, and Habitat will find a place for them.

“Stop in, visit with our representatives and find out how you can help,” states promotional material for the open house. “Habitat for Humanity has a place for you to put your beliefs into action.”

Habitat has branched off beyond building homes for the needy. It offers a variety of family support services, mortgaging and a place for socializing.

The Superior address includes the Habitat store, where building materials can be donated and purchased for further use.
