South Puget Sound Habitat for Humanity recently had the privilege of participating in Habitat on the Hill, a nationwide gathering where advocates from Habitat affiliates across the country come together to champion affordable housing initiatives. Our very own Interim CEO, Greg, had the opportunity to represent our organization at this impactful event.
As we celebrate Valentine's Month, we extend our heartfelt gratitude to our amazing volunteers and donors who are the heartbeat of our organization. Without your unwavering support, dedication, and generosity, we wouldn't be able to fulfill our mission of building homes, hope, and brighter futures for families in Thurston County.
In the tapestry of American history, the profound contributions of Black leaders in housing advocacy have woven a narrative of resilience, determination, and a commitment to building equitable communities. As we celebrate Black History Month, it is crucial to explore the roots of advocacy that have shaped the landscape of community development and affordable housing.
On December 6th, we had the privilege of coming together for a memorable evening - our Volunteer Appreciation Night. Now, as we reflect on the event, we are filled with gratitude for the incredible moments shared and the bonds strengthened.
We are excited to announce the successful completion of our transformative project made possible by the prestigious Puget Sound Energy Solar Grant. The grant enabled us to install solar panels on the south side of the Yelm Habitat Store, representing a significant achievement in our commitment to embracing renewable energy and fostering a sustainable future. Thrilled to combine affordable housing with environmentally friendly practices, we are proud to have taken this momentous step powered by the sun!
As we usher in the New Year, South Puget Sound Habitat for Humanity reflects on the incredible stories of hope and transformation that have unfolded within our community. We believe in the power of housing to create new beginnings, offering families the stability and security they need to thrive.
