Habitat’s programs are a hand-up to affordable home ownership & home maintenance and repairs, so local families achieve long-term stability
WHY WE BUILD!
Opportunity - Hope - Stability, -Dignity - Community!
Supporting Habitat for Humanity improves the health and welfare of children and families, positively impacts your local economy, offers a hand up for working families, and impacts long-term housing stability and dignity.
Our housing programs are a hand-up to affordable homeownership and home maintenance and repairs. Local families achieve long-term stability. Their children are more likely to finish high school and go to college. And Habitat home owners have the lowest foreclosure rates in the nation!
Habitat for Humanity of Summit and Wasatch Counties, Utah is a non-profit housing agency committed to filling the need for decent, affordable, healthy and energy efficient homes for local working families.
How We're Meeting Local Housing Needs:
Our Commitment to Energy Efficiency:
We are committed to building homes that are healthy and energy and water efficient. The new Habitat home recently completed in Park City has received LEED Platinum certification, and its owners are realizing a 48% or greater annual energy savings and live in a healthy house. Most importantly, because of Habitat’s model of working with volunteers, homeowners, local businesses and contractors, the cost of achieving LEED certification was significantly reduced.

These statistics help underscore the pricing gap that largely drives our local affordable housing needs:
Your contribution today will support our 2013 Annual Campaign, a vital component of our $400,000 annual budget. Fully funded, this year’s budget will provide zero interest home ownership for two families, and low cost, zero interest home repairs to five qualifying home owners to improve safety, health, accessibility and energy efficiency in their homes.
