Habitat for Humanity to build first house in Trempealeau County

LA CROSSE (WKBT) — Habitat for Humanity La Crosse Area announced Tuesday that it’s looking for someone to help  build a new house in Trempealeau County.

The nonprofit organization partnered with the city of Arcadia to buy a vacant lot on Wilson Avenue in Arcadia.

Executive Director Kahya Fox is excited about this new house, saying, “It’s amazing to begin connecting with a new community. Everyone in Arcadia and Trempealeau County has been supportive. We have a dedicated group of citizens who will be instrumental in constructing the first Habitat home in Trempealeau County.”

Habitat is accepting applications for the homeowner program through Friday, Nov. 19. It will host informational sessions at 5 p.m. Thursday and 10 a.m. Saturday at the Ashley Conference Room at the Wanek Center in Arcadia.

Construction on the house is slated to begin in the spring.

“We will be in Arcadia throughout the summer and into the fall,” says Construction Manager Jeremy Reed. “We will need a lot of help from the community to build this home,”
