McKibbin Commons is Evergreen Habitat’s largest subdivision to date. When completed, it will be home to ten hard working, low income families. The project was named after founding member and former board president, John McKibbin. John played an integral role in laying the foundation for Habitat’s work through his dedication and compassion for enhancing our community. He wanted to see solutions for his neighbors and friends who were faced with incredible challenges and worked to make Vancouver a stronger and more vibrant place to live. John not only believed in this vision for our community, but he lived his life in a way that illustrated it every day. As a teacher, a developer, and a public servant, he spent his career crossing sectors to build and support his beloved home of Clark County.
As a founding board member and former board president of Evergreen Habitat for Humanity, we are deeply grateful for John’s lifelong commitment to service. The families who have come through our program as successful new homeowners are each a testament to his faith in this community and his belief in giving a hand up to those in need. That is why we named our current ten home subdivision in his honor, “McKibbin Commons”, to commemorate John’s legacy and the work he did to lay the foundation of our organization.
With your support, Evergreen Habitat for Humanity aims to complete McKibbin Commons, its largest build to-date, by Spring 2018.
Six of the foundations are in and four 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 & Services and PeaceHealth Southwest.

The six home is being build thanks to the generous support of Office Ally. Thank you to all of our sponsors who help make our homeownership program possible for hardworking families.
