CHELAN – Lake Chelan Valley Habitat for Humanity (HFH) is adding eight new residences inside Chelan city limits in the very near future. Groundbreaking has already begun for a multi-family residence on the 700 block of Wapato Avenue. The townhouse, which has an anticipated completion timeframe of early 2018, will be part of a subdivision consisting of two duplexes and four single family residences according to Executive Director Mark Reimers with Lake Chelan Valley HFH. The awarded two families have already started to work off the 400-volunteer work or “sweat equity” hours required for building the housing at 712 and 714 Wapato Avenue.
Family selection is based of several criteria including need, ability to pay, and willingness to partner. Once selected by the committee, each family must put in an allotted amount of sweat equity by way of assisting in the build and preparation of the residence, providing food for volunteers, or working in the local store, as well as demonstrating the ability to repay the cost of the build.
For more information on the family selection process, volunteering, or to apply to become a “Habitat Home Owner”, visit Lake Chelan Valley Habitat for Humanity at chelanhabitat.com.
