Habitat’s programs are a hand-up to affordable home ownership, maintenance and repairs, so local families achieve long-term stability!
At Habitat, we believe home is a foundation for the future, the place where everything begins.
Yet, 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!
Your donation will build more than houses. You will build potential, stability, hope and health for hardworking families in our community.
What will you build with a gift to Habitat?
Your gift will build more than houses.
This year, we have set an ambitious goal: partner with up to 10 qualifying low-income home owners to repair and rehabilitat their homes for health, safety, and energy efficiency.
You can make this possible! Your support will provide a "hand up, not a hand out" to more hardworking families in Summit and Wasatch Counties.
Your investment in your local Habitat for Humanity builds potential, stability, hope, and health, and creates long-term impact for low income families and our community:
Access to affordable homes: Zero-interest, no profit mortgages that are half the cost of local rental units. Every mortgage dollar paid to Habitat from our home owners is reinvested into the next local Habitat housing project.
Build healthy homes: Habitat completed it's second 'green' certified LEED Platinum and Energy Star certified home on Marsac Avenue in Park City. Habitat is commited to building green homes that save home owners 50% on their energy bills and protect our mountain community.
Sustainability: The ReStore - a home improvement re-use store - in Park City will celebrate its one-year anniversary next month. Re-use of home and building materials reduces landfill waste by up to 270 tons annually and generates fundds to reinvest into local housing needs.
Build economic self-sufficiency: Families partner with Habitat - contribute sweat-equity, gain financial knowledge and qualify for low-cost renovation and zero interest mortgages.
Home renovation & repair: Habitat's AmeriCorps Team has built awareness for our critical home repair program to serve 10 families this year. Our first home renovation was completed in Heber City last year. Habitat accepts applications throughout the year to assist qualifying homeowners with repair and maintenance needs.
Community supported: 350 volunteers contributed 5,000 hours to Habitat last year (a value of $92,000) on building projects, at the ReStore, and with in-kind donations of expertise and goods.
Local economic benefit: Each dollar invested on a Habitat home provides more than seven dollars paid forward into the community through purchase of materials, services and tax base.
