Hemlock View Trail is located less than five miles away from Manistique and a minute’s walk away from Lake Michigan. This trail leads to a new home being built by Habitat for Humanity.

“We did seven weeks of building here to get from a basement to this, which is pretty remarkable,” said Mary Vandeveld, Director of Habitat’s RV Care-A-Vanner program and a Gladstone resident, a report mentioned.

Vandeveld was accompanied by her husband Dave, who led volunteers from Illinois to Florida when they joined forces with Habitat for Humanity HiawathaLand.

The Vandeveld family provided funding to support the project, which was launched in June.

Habitat for Humanity was constructed from the work of contractors who worked on plumbing and electricity.

“It’s an amazing program to help people who cannot afford to buy a home, get them into one,” stated Edward Haagsma of Care-A-Vanner, who hails from Virginia. He was joined by Teresa in the project.

RV Care-A–Vanners volunteer to help with projects across the country. All at no cost.

A Manistique couple who are disabled and retired hopes to have their new home ready for them by October.

They’re excited to have this home because they’ve never owned one before. Vandeveld explained that they live in a small apartment.
