What will YOU build?

Habitat for Humanity builds more than homes. We build opportunity.

For many low-income families in our mountain community, adequate resources for a safe, healthy and affordable home are beyond their grasp. You can help!

What will you build with a gift to Habitat?

  • Build potential for a child.
  • Build stability for a family.
  • Build hope for the future.
  • Build a healthy community.

You can make this possible! Your support will provide a "hand up, not a hand out" to more hardworking families and achieve an ambitious goal: partner with 4 to 8 qualifying low-income home owners to repair and rehabilitate their homes for health, safety, and energy efficiency. Thank you!

Why does affordable housing matter?

  • Children who live in stable housing do better in school, impacting their future and the learning environment in their classroom.
  • Health outcomes are directly linked to decent, safe, affordable housing, impacting our healthcare system and costs.
  • When homes are preserved, the entire community benefits, impacting our quality of life and neighborhoods.

Our unique community needs for affordable housing.

Local families and workers are…

…shut out of the local housing market. There is a large gap between what a low- to moderate-income family can afford and the supply of local housing in an affordable price range.

…are struggling with the cost of home repairs. Existing low- to moderate-income homeowners often need to choose between repairing a leaky roof, replacing old windows, or needed medical care, child care and transportation.

…need support navigating resources to buy or repair their home. Finding available resources to strengthen credit and improve home-buyer readiness can be confusing.

With your help, Habitat provides community-based, affordable housing solutions.

We Build New & Green

  • Habitat mortgages are “paid forward” to fund new homes for qualified buyers.
  • Safe, healthy and energy efficient “green” new homes with lower energy costs and environmental impact.

We Preserve & Repair

  • Only local provider of affordable home repair & preservation services for low to moderate income home owners.
  • Tailored services to preserve, rehab, repair and weatherize homes of qualified owners.

We Advocate & Educate

  • Provide access to tools and support building financial stability leading to economic self-sufficiency.
  • Connect low- to moderate-income families with community resources.

Our Impact

  • New Green Homes: Built two LEED Platinum Certified homes in Park City with generous support from the community. Our homes are a model for green building on an affordable scale.
  • ReStore: A home improvement re-use store in Park City opened in 2013. Re-use of home and building materials reduces landfill waste by up to 270 tons annually and generates funds to reinvest into local housing needs.
  • Community Supported: Engaged hundreds of volunteers who have contributed over 10,000 hours to Habitat year to date on home repair projects such as South Summit Park and the Coalville Senior Center in partnership with agencies such as Wasatch Back Trees and Mountain Lands Senior Services.
  • Community Needs Assessment & Outreach: Two AmeriCorps Teams conducted “roof-top” surveys this year to access housing repair needs and built awareness for our home repair program so that we can serve more families in the years to come.
  • Home Preservation and Repair: First home renovation completed in Heber City. Two repair projects are currently in progress, one a weatherization project. Habitat accepts applications year-round to assist qualifying homeowners with repair and maintenance needs.
  • Build economic self-sufficiency: Financial counseling and support provided to Habitat partner families and to individuals seeking the opportunities of affordable home ownership. Habitat partners with local businesses and nonprofits, such as Mountain Lands Community Housing Trust and The Park City Board of Realtors to provide home buyer readiness workshops.
