2017 Hero Build
A group fundraising campaign for Lake Agassiz Habitat for Humanity.
About This Campaign
On February 10th 2016, Fargo Police Officer, Jason Moszer, was killed in the line of duty when he was called to protect and serve. Like all those who spend their lives serving others, he was hero.
This Summer, help us celebrate heroes like Jason by helping build a home for a single mom in need of decent housing. A home that will help her, and her kids, build strength, stability and self-reliance.This home will be built on the site where Officer Moszer was killed. It is our hope that it will provide healing for the Moszer/Schumacher families, the neighborhood and the community.
The future homeowner is a HERO in her own special way. Danielle is a Survivor of Domestic Sex Trafficking and has devoted her life to helping other survivors rebuild and overcome. Even though her job isn’t easy, she says every minute is worth it. By donating you can help her and her kids have a secure, safe, affordable, healthy place to live. Lets work together to turn a tragedy into a triumph!"
The plan is in place, but we need YOU to help us complete the fundraising goal so we can get this home built. Please donate today. If you'd like to set up your own fundraising campaign for this build, click the participate button to the right.
Volunteer sign up will be coming soon!

Campaign to Support Lake Agassiz Habitat for Humanity
Lake Agassiz Habitat for Humanity (LAHFH) is part of a global, nonprofit housing organization operated on Christian principles that seeks to put God’s love into action by building homes, communities and hope. LAHFH is dedicated to eliminating substandard housing locally and worldwide through constructing, rehabilitating and preserving homes; by advocating for fair and just housing policies; and by providing training and access to resources to help families improve their shelter conditions. Habitat for Humanity was founded on the conviction that every man, woman and child should have a simple, durable place to live in dignity and safety, and that decent shelter in decent communities should be a matter of conscience and action for all. We partner with local businesses, churches and volunteers to help build homes with qualifying families. Volunteers provide most of the labor, and individual and corporate donors provide money and materials to build Habitat houses. Most importantly, partner families play a large role in the building of the home. They invest 250 hours of labor - "sweat equity" - into building their homes and the homes of others. They also make interest-free mortgage payments which go into a fund that is used to build more houses.
Thank you to the Moszer family for joining us on this build!
