Located in the Father Blanchet Park Neighborhood, our current project is a 10-home subdivision named after former Board President and long-time supporter John McKibbin. The families who will become successful new homeowners at this site will each be a testament to his faith in this community and his belief in giving a hand-up to those in need.
With your support, Evergreen Habitat for Humanity aims to complete McKibbin Commons, its largest build to-date, by the end of 2017.
Road infrastructure, utility installation and land leveling has already happened. Four of the foundations are in and six more will be coming soon. Two of the homes will be built in partnership with the Geometry in Construction program at Evergreen and Mountain View High Schools and one will be built in partnership with the YouthBuild program. The fourth home is being built through our Women Build program thanks to the generous support of Providence Health and Services and PeaceHealth Southwest. To learn more about the Women Build program, see here.
