Salt Lake Valley Habitat for Humanity Sets Donation Record in 2013

Press Release

December 24, 2013

Salt Lake City – Salt Lake Valley Habitat for Humanity ended the 2013 year as one of its strongest ever, with the help of a record $1.9 million in donations.

Part of the almost $2 million led to the construction of six new homes in 2013, for families earning only 30 to 60 percent of the area median income and unable to afford a home on their own without assistance.

In addition, the donations helped set another record by completing 73 home repairs through the not-for-profit’s Green Healthy Homes Initiative – helping a total of 157 people including 59 children, 15 senior citizens, as well as veterans and the disabled.

The Neighborhood Revitalization Initiative addresses critical repair issues in low-income housing, specifically repairs to reduce health problems in communities along the Wasatch Front

We are extremely pleased with the successful 2013 year, and it wouldn’t have been possible without the many volunteers contributing to our cause,” said Ed Blake, executive director for Salt Lake Valley Habitat for Humanity.
