Thank you to these partners for their special efforts to house Habitat families
- CSS Supports Habitat for Humanity
In 2012, CSS began contributing a portion of every closing fee it collects to Habitat for Humanity as well as donating closing services to individual Habitat families. CSS employees have also contributed to our Kinsgley home build as well as other local Habitat fundraising events.
- DTE Energy Foundation
The foundation was the first to sign on for our first LEED certified Habitat home in the Grand Traverse region. A $20,000 grant started the process of bringing on NMC and Safe Harbor churches to build a house for Ryan Hannon. Special thanks to Steve Rawlings, Bob Fegan, and Debra Galik of DTE Energy for their commitment to energy efficiency.
- NMC’s Residential Construction Program
NMC has joined as a Habitat partner by constructing energy efficient walls for new Habitat homes. They started with our first LEED house and will continue as schedules allow. They will also be helping us with paneling as we begin moving forward with our Depot Neighborhood. Special thanks to Ed Bailey, Devin Hill, and Kirby Anderson for their hard work and flexibility, providing a unique opportunity for Habitat and for NMC students.
- Traverse City State Bank
TCSB happily stepped forward as our member bank to access down payment assistance funds from the Federal Home Loan Bank of Indianapolis. This represents $5,000 down payment assistance for each Habitat family. Thank you, Dan Baldwin and Amy Grant, for your generous donation and time and effort to secure these funds.
- Oleson Family Foundation
This generous community supporter committed $5000 to the home of the new home built on Sawyer Road, moving a family from a small substandard home to a new energy efficient Habitat home on their own property.
- Michigan State Housing Development Authority (MSHDA)
MSHDA not only donated a $35,000 construction loan for the home mentioned above, they also provide down payment assistance for all Habitat homeowners for $10,000-$12,000. Special thanks to Julie Gardner at MSHDA for their facilitation efforts.
