AUDIO: This week we talk to Jennifer Spatz, Executive Director at Coos County Habitat For Humanity.
From their website – Coos County Habitat for Humanity is a locally run affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing organization. Coos County Habitat for Humanity works in partnership with the local community to eliminate substandard housing through our New Home Build and Critical Home Repair programs. Our programs are a hand-up, not a hand out – our partner families invest hundreds of hours of “sweat equity” into new home construction builds; critical home repair recipients also invest “sweat equity.” Families receiving new homes or critical home repairs pay back their zero percent interest loans at affordable rates. This hand-up not only helps our families, but the community as well – empty lots become affordable homes, existing housing stock is preserved, and homeowners’ property taxes help to support our local schools and government.
