Habitat is Awarded $10,000 Grant
WILLIAMSTON, Mich. (June 3, 2014) We are excited to announce that Habitat for Humanity of Greater Ingham County (HFHGI) has been awarded a $10,000 grant from the Capital Region Community Foundation (CRCF) for their Critical Home Repair Program (CHR) only in rural Ingham County. The program provides repairs that alleviate health, life and safety/code issues, weatherization, improving energy efficiency and indoor air quality and wheelchair ramps.
The CHR programs helps homeowners who are affected by age, disability, or family circumstances and who struggle to maintain the integrity of their homes. Through the CHR program families are able to reclaim their homes with pride and dignity. HFHGI’s Executive Director, Racheal Sanford states, “building homes for families is not all that Habitats can provide anymore, there are significant needs in our communities for these critical repairs, homes are simply getting older, community members are getting older, unfortunate accidents do happen and people need help. Our affiliate’s strategic goal is not just to build homes, it is to provide safe homes, as well as transform and strengthen communities so that those who reside in them will be able to live and grow into all that God intends for them. The program also addresses the health and safety of families, strengthens connections within the community and helps preserve affordable housing stock.”
For more information on this program and qualifications guidelines please visit the HFHGI website at www.inghamhabitat.org.
The Community Foundation is a “collection” of permanent endowments designed to meet all a donor’s individualized charitable goals through one simple vehicle. Within the CRCF is “The Center for Charitable Giving”, which is a public resource for donors, professional advisors, non-profit agencies, municipalities, corporations, and others who have questions about how to achieve their charitable goals.
