About Evergreen Habitat for Humanity
Evergreen Habitat for Humanity works to break the cycle of generational poverty and to revitalize Clark County neighborhoods by providing stable, permanent housing to low-income families.
Creating an environment where poverty housing and homelessness become socially unacceptable is the ultimate purpose of Habitat's work. The affiliate realizes its mission by building and refurbishing homes using volunteer labor and tax-deductible donations of materials.
Through Habitat's unique home-ownership program, Evergreen Habitat is able to see homes to partner families at zero- to one-percent interest after they complete their sweat-equity hours. The mortgage payments made by partner families are placed in a revolving fund used to build future Habitat homes.
A self-sustained affiliate of Habitat International since 1991, Evergreen Habitat has contributed 27 homes in Clark County serving 103 individuals, including 64 children to the over 500,000 homes Habitat has built worldwide.
