IVHFH HONORS DAVE SCHULDT
On April 17, IVHFH will kick off construction of a Habitat home in memory of a dear friend and long-time supporter, Dave Schuldt. Having biked well over 100,000 miles across the United States and the world, Dave loved being outdoors and cherished memories of adventures with family and friends. After retiring 20 years ago, he maintained his active lifestyle, including reading and music, as he continued his formal and informal mentoring and ministry. He was an active participant in the Oaknoll retirement community where he lived with his wife Sandra.

For 30 years, Dave was director of the Wesley Foundation at the University of Iowa, and during that tenure, he led almost 50 trips to the Boundary Waters in Minnesota for students, friends and family. He was an active member of First United Methodist Church since his arrival in 1965 as associate pastor.

As an extension of the Wesley role and his personal values, Dave Schuldt was a servant and leader for Iowa City organizations and humanitarian efforts, including his support of the Habitat for Humanity mission locally and globally. We are proud to honor Dave through a new home construction project. The future homeowners will put down roots in this new home, and Dave’s memory will forever live on through a structure that will serve as lasting stability for their family — leaving a legacy of hope, stability, and joy. 
Join us on Saturday, April 17 for the Dave Schuldt Memorial Build Groundbreaking Ceremony!

WOMEN BUILD COMMITTEE TO HOST CHRISTINE GRANT RUN/WALK/BUILD WEEK
Many traditions and events have been on hold this past year, and after cancelling all 2020 gatherings, IVHFH wanted to bring back a tradition that is close to the hearts of all Habitat staff and Women Build committee members.

In lieu of an in-person 5K, we will be hosting the Christine Grant Run/Walk/Build Week.

Though this event may look a bit different this year, we still have the same goals:

  • Honor and recognize Dr. Christine Grant
  • Promote Women Build and the Habitat mission
  • Engage our supporters
  • Raise funds for the construction of the Jane Hagedorn Women Build home and Helping Hands critical home repair project

IVHFH BEGINS MUSCATINE AVENUE REMODEL
Iowa Valley Habitat for Humanity began remodeling a home on Muscatine Avenue earlier this year. Volunteer opportunities will be available for this project again later this spring. This project will provide an affordable homeownership opportunity for a qualifying family earning between 40% and 80% of the area median income.
