HABITAT FOR HUMANITY MID-YELLOWSTONE VALLEY, WALL RAISING HOUSE #93
BILLINGS (Sept. 14, 2023) - On Thursday morning, September 14, 2023, at 9:00 AM HABITAT FOR HUMANITY along with volunteers from Wells Fargo will raise the walls on House #93. This is a three-bedroom home for Rhonda Blankenship. The home is located in the new Founders Park Subdivision located one block off of Wicks Lane on Hawthorne. The address is 1533 Ping Circle. To obtain location directions please search for Habitat for Humanity Worksite, 1202 N. Ping Cir in Google maps. This home is made possible by the generous Major sponsorship of Rich & Betty and the two contributing sponsors, Habitat for Humanity’s long-time building partner, Wells Fargo Bank along with The Washington Foundation.
Habitat for Humanity is an ecumenical, Christian housing ministry which builds houses in partnership with low income families. Businesses, churches, groups and individuals join the partnership to help eliminate poverty housing in our community. The families must put in at least 350-500 hours of sweat equity labor working on others’ houses as well as their own. After completion, Habitat sells the homes to the pre-qualified families at no profit and with a no-interest loan. Families qualify based on (1) need (2) willingness to partner (3) ability to pay a house payment of about $800/month and (4) stability in the community. Families must be currently living in inadequate housing to be considered.
Habitat for Humanity Mid-Yellowstone Valley has been a significant contributor to low income housing in our community since 1992. Over 230 children have been given the opportunity to live in stable, safe, decent, affordable housing through the Habitat homeownership program. Adults in the program put in between 350 and 500 sweat equity hours in addition to hours of homeownership and financial literacy classes. They then purchase the home from Habitat utilizing a 0% mortgage.
The public is invited to come help raise the walls. If you are interested in volunteering to work on a Habitat house, please contact the office directly at 406-652-0960. We take groups as well as individuals, however scheduling is needed in advance
This is a great project. We invite the community to come by and watch House #93 in the Billings area get a great start. Hope to see you there.
