On July 25, Door County Habitat for Humanity closed on the former Kimberley House. The Kimberley House closed their doors in July 2015. In May, the Kimberley Foundation Board of Directors decided to offer the home, located at 33 N. Joliet in Sturgeon Bay, to Door County Habitat for Humanity.
Steve Wilkie, Kimberley House board president, said, “With Habitat’s history of success in helping families within our community, the property will be well used.”
The Board of Directors of Door County Habitat for Humanity agreed to accept the gift of the former Kimberley House. The first thought was to use the house for partner families, but the home is too large and costly to maintain. The home will be sold and the proceeds used to build more decent and affordable housing in Door County.
