Today we partnered with Habitat for Humanity of Summit County to DONATE OVER 60 Brand NEW Windows from The Third Estimate!
This AMAZING Non-Profit Organization has built over 200 homes and has housed more than 300 adults and 500 children.
Habitat for Humanity of Summit County was organized as an affiliate in 1986. Their vision is a world where everyone has a decent place to live. Habitat for Humanity brings people together, not just here in Summit County, but also from all over the world, building homes, communities and hope!
Globally, they have helped 13.2 million people obtain a safer place to call home and to sleep at night. They have also helped to improve living conditions for 3.5 million people.
Their homes are sold on a 30 year, zero-interest mortgage to each partner family. This mortgage is paid directly to Habitat in monthly installments creating what is known as the “revolving fund for humanity”. The fund helps provide resources to build more houses and more hope in Summit County.
Requiring each family to complete 250 “sweat equity” hours per adult in the household before moving into their new home. The hours are completed by helping to build their future home and the homes of other families in the program, volunteering with other non-profits, and attending homeownership classes held by the affiliate. These classroom sessions are mandatory and provide the new homeowner with training on budgeting, home maintenance, gardening, nutrition, first aid and more.
