About North Platte
The first steering committee meeting of a group to form an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International under the leadership of then editor of the North Platte Telegraph newspaper, Keith Blackledge, was held on March 3, 1997. After many meetings and gathering much required data it was reported that the name of North Platte Area Habitat for Humanity (NPAHFH) had been approved for the group on April 8, 1997. Articles of Incorporation and By-Laws were approved and the Affiliate status was granted in January 1998. The lot for the first house was purchased in March of 1998, family selected in April 1998, ground breaking in May 1998, and the house was completed and dedicated on September 20, 1998.

Every Donation Builds:
A Habitat home is a strong foundation for a family, an opportunity on which they can build a better life. Strong and stable homes help build strong and stable communities.
A Habitat home is a stabilizing force for a family. Better, affordable living conditions lead to improved health, stronger childhood development and the ability – and finanacial flexability – to make forward-looking choices.
Through shelter, we empower. A decent place to live and an affordable mortgage help homeowners save more, invest in education, pursue opportunity and have financial stability.
We couldn’t do what we do without the assistance of many volunteers. It takes all of us, working together to build a hometown where everyone has a decent place to live.
