9 TINY HOMES IN 3 YEARS
Tiny Home Project
To truly embody the Habitat for Humanity vision where everyone has a decent place to live, Habitat for Humanity of Grays Harbor is embarking on a new Tiny Home Project.
Habitat for Humanity of Grays Harbor has recently dedicated House #18 to its newest family. To continue with making homeownership dreams come true we have a new goal. The Tiny Home project goal is to build 9 tiny homes in a 3-year time span, with the first 3 houses in the planning stage starting this year – thanks to a generous grant of $256,500 from Grays Harbor County.
Our goal is to provide simple yet solid affordable housing to a segment of the population not currently served by Habitat. With a qualifying income level as low as 20% of the area median income, these tiny homes will open up our housing initiative to single people and couples on a fixed income.
Now more than ever, it is important to build safe and affordable housing for low-income families and veterans that have an income of 20-50% of the area median income.
HELP US TODAY!
Habitat’s strategic plan supplies the framework for exponentially expanding our community impact so that we can partner with more families to build or improve places to call home.
Because of ever rising and often unpredictable rents, many people are forced to make impossible choices about food, health care, and education. An aging house with faulty wiring or a leaking roof does not provide safe shelter, and rundown residences in need of paint and repair do not make for vibrant neighborhoods with safe streets. Poorly sealed windows and doors and lack of insulation lead to exorbitant energy bills for families without the funds or expertise to perform renovations. Whole communities struggle with the instability and lack of opportunity that follow when safe, decent, affordable places to live are hard to come by. We have the unmatched ability to address this need. Driven by the vision that everyone needs a decent place to live, Habitat for Humanity of Grays Harbor has partnered with families for 20 years to build and improve places they can call home. Our work focuses on increasing access to homeownership and housing finance, improving housing affordability and quality, helping communities prepare for building a strong and solid foundation to life. That in return builds strong and resilient neighborhoods.
Through shelter, we empower. Affordable housing is the foundation on which families and communities thrive. Help us today. Your donation moves our mission forward, leveraging resources to respond to Grays Harbor’s housing need.
