Habitat for Humanity Completes Renovation
Written by Andrew-Rossi on July 16, 2018
Habitat for Humanity doesn’t just build homes these days.
According to Executive Director Jaime Schmeiser, Mountain Spirit Habitat for Humanity of Park County just announced the completion of their first home renovation project under the Neighborhood Revitalization Initiative/Home Repair Program.
In an effort to increase the number of families served, Mountain Spirit Habitat for Humanity is stepping up their efforts to recruit volunteers and increase their funding. They are seeking additional support in the way of capital, additional volunteers and donations.
Mountain Spirit Habitat for Humanity has constructed 20 homes since its founding in 1997 and is currently constructing a new home in partnership with a single mom in Cody.
Habitat for Humanity International is a non-profit, ecumenical Christian housing ministry, which works in 1400 local communities all over the U.S. and 70 countries around the world. Habitat has helped more than 9.8 million people with improved living conditions. But Habitat is not a giveaway program – in addition to monthly mortgage or loan payments, homeowners must invest hundreds of hours of their own labor, which they call sweat equity, into building or renovating their Habitat houses and the houses of others.
