– About South Puget Sound Habitat (SPSHH)
“Founded in 1989, SPS Habitat serves the very-low income families whose dream is to shed the shackles of poverty, own their own homes and self determine their own futures.
Working with donors and volunteers, SPS Habitat Develops and builds affordable housing communities in Thurston County.
To date we have completed four developments and fifty houses, currently we are building Deyoe Vista, a thirty-three single family home development in Lacey.”
– Editor’s Note:
Dutton tells the Yelm Community Blog that with their growth since opening here 4 1/2 years ago, SPSHH is looking for the Yelm retail store to one-day fund the building of Habitat homes in the Yelm area.
– Seattle’s largest global airline, Delta, makes a difference in Mexico & Seattle:
“Delta celebrates 13th Global Build with Habitat for Humanity in Mexico”
“In addition, Delta volunteers will build seven homes across U.S. cities this fall, including Atlanta, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, New York City and Seattle, marking Delta homes 242 through 248 in partnership with Habitat for Humanity throughout the airline’s 15-plus years of support. Delta’s partnership with Habitat for Humanity supports the airline’s commitment to contribute 1 percent of its net income from the previous year to key charitable organizations.
