2022 Habitat for Humanity Project

UUAA is part of an interfaith group of 13 area congregations, the “Good News Group” that has been working together since 1997 in partnership with Habitat for Humanity of Huron Valley. We have helped 36 families (with over 66 children!) move into affordable, very energy efficient housing, primarily in Ypsilanti neighborhoods. We help families, neighborhoods and the environment– and we laugh and have fun doing it.  Click on this link to view a map of the homes we have built and renovated in the Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti area.

We always need your donations to help pay for these community outreach programs. Use this Donate button to make an online donation (be sure to select “Habitat for Humanity” in the dropdown selection list).

Our 2022 Good News Home Renovation 

The 2022 Good News Home is at 893 Nash Ave. in Ypsilanti.

The homeowners for the Nash House have not been decided yet, so stay tuned!

We are again joining our Good News partner congregations and Habitat for Humanity Huron Valley for UUAA’s 23rd year of helping work on a “Good News House”.

 Site workers wear comfortable clothing and shoes that you don’t mind getting splashed with paint or mud or sawdust.
No special skills needed! You will be taught how to carry out tasks that are new to you.

All tools are provided. You can bring your own tools if you want, but please mark them to make sure they go home with you!
