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 Winter 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. To learn more about the Women Build program, see here. The fifth home is being built thanks to the generous support of Burdette Beckmen Inc. The sixth 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.
