Wayfair joins Teton Habitat to support Phase III of The Grove

Wayfair donates all the bathroom fixtures to homeowners at The Grove, Phase III.

Habitat for Humanity of the Greater Teton Area (Teton Habitat) and Wayfair, one of the world’s largest online destinations for the home, are collaborating to support the development of Phase III of The Grove, a multi-family condominium complex that will provide housing to an estimated 32 adults and 54 children.  Residents at The Grove will benefit from Wayfair’s vast renovation product selection and receive donated fixtures such as bathroom vanities, countertops, mirrors, toilets, and towel racks. In addition, residents also received sink and shower fixtures from Kohler.

“Since 2012, Wayfair has partnered with Habitat for Humanity International, our headquarters, as well as local affiliates across the nation. We were very eager to build a direct relationship and help promote their versatile contractor services in Jackson,” says Kendra Heimbuck, Teton Habitat’s Executive Director.

The donated fixtures are currently being installed in eight homes, the first to be ready for residents at The Grove. Future homeowners were overjoyed to unwrap the bathroom vanity packages from Wayfair during a recent Saturday build day.

“It’s so beautiful!” exclaimed Nicolle Moyer, future Habitat Homeowner “I can’t believe this is going into my house.”

Habitat is currently under construction with 16 of the 24 units in Phase III of The Grove. The first eight units are expected to be finished in late September.

“We’re proud to support such an important project in the Jackson Hole community by working with Habitat for Humanity of the Greater Teton Area to provide needed bathroom fixtures for the homeowners at The Grove,” said Jane Carpenter, Head of Corporate Social Responsibility at Wayfair. “Habitat for Humanity’s critical work in local communities supports our core mission to help people live in a comfortable home that they love.”

Beloved Community Member Nominee Form

Do you know someone in the community who goes above and beyond to help those who are facing housing insecurities?

Teton Habitat for Humanity, Spread the Love Commission and Shelter JH are taking applications for Beloved Community members who make a stand for affordable housing.

Foresters Financial Delivers the Difference at The Grove

Last month Teton Habitat entertained its largest volunteer group to date.

On June 21st, 150 volunteers from Foresters Financial lent their helping hands at The Grove working on various flooring, painting and framing projects. Foresters Financial, an international financial services provider, hosted their annual sales celebration in Jackson Hole in late June. The group was made up of their agents from all over the continent who had reached a particular sales goal.

“The Foresters organizers reached out in early fall 2017,” said Elizabeth Ferguson, Outreach Coordinator for Teton Habitat. “Since that time we have been in constant communication planning, organizing and coordinating the large group.”

This Delivering the Difference program was Foresters Financials first project in the state of Wyoming. Forester’s contributed financial support as well as dedicated volunteers. At the end of the day on June 21st, the group contributed 450 hours of service on sixteen homes at The Grove. The group successfully painted the first eight units, placed almost all the fence along the west side of the property, and framed all the pony walls in the fourth building.

“Foresters Financial and our members have worked together since 1874 to build strong communities and enrich lives.” Kaylie McCann, Foresters Financial Manager of Sales Engagement. “We are excited to have helped families in Jackson Hole through this partnership with Teton Habitat.”

Teton Habitat has just begun exploring hosting traveling groups similar to Forester’s Financial. Voluntourism is an idea that Elizabeth Ferguson had just started exploring.

“We are set up to host many more groups similar to Foresters,” said Ferguson. “I would love to see more tourist get involved with our local community, the community that they are visiting and enjoying.” Ferguson has explored the idea of Voluntourism in collaboration with the Jackson Hole Chamber and other groups.

Colter Elementary Supports Habitat for Humanity

Colter Elementary Supports Habitat for Humanity

Each year Colter Elementary contributes funds and support to an organization selected by the students. This year the student’s leaders wanted to donate to a charity within our local community. They voted to support Habitat for Humanity, a local non-profit that helps build affordable homes for those in need. “This amazing group has provided homes for many of our students, past and present.” Says Student Leader Program “PEAK” Coordinator Christine Jenkins. “The students really connected with the need for everyone to have a safe, decent and stable home.”

Students were able to contribute through the school’s annual fund drive as well as volunteering their artistic talents. Organized through the school’s student leadership program the school mobilized to raise funds via an innovative coin-drive generating over $1,200 to support local efforts to provide affordable homes to families in our community.  They also hand painted 40 flowerpots, which the organization will use at its annual fund raising luncheon and then gift to each new homeowner family at the Grove.

“I was blown away when these kids presented us with this big check!” says Paul Schmidt, Teton Habitat’s Development Officer, “It’s incredible to see Jackson’s youth get so fired up about supporting local affordable housing.”

Colombia Trip Builds Lasting Relationships

Teton Habitat Global Village 2018 trip to Colombia changes lives and builds lasting relationships with our global partner Habitat para a la Humanidad Colombia.

In April a team of volunteers from Teton Habitat laid the foundation for one new home and prepared the ground for a second in Filandia, Colombia. It was the beginning of a 5-year partnership between Habitat para la Humanidad Colombia and Habitat for Humanity of the Greater Teton Area.

Under the guidance of professional maestros, our volunteers worked alongside Habitat Colombia partner families leveling ground, digging trenches, mixing concrete, and fabricating the steel structures that would give strength and stability to the new homes. But the real adventure was forming heartfelt bonds with the community, learning from Colombians’ experiences, and absorbing the culture of a country striving for peace.

“It was a great experience, I highly recommend others to try it at least once!” exclaims ReStore Manager, Kevin Spence.

In addition to 5 days of building, the team met staff from the mayor’s office who shared there their vision of Filandia’s future as an agri-tourism/eco-tourism destination. They met naturalists who taught them about Colombia’s unique ecosystems and their role in the country’s history. They met a coffee grower who showed them how coffee is farmed in Quindio and explained its importance in the local economy.

Team members were moved by the welcome that greeted them and encouraged by the hope and optimism that was expressed by the people of Filandia. Having established a firm foundation of mutual gratitude and respect, Jacksonites and Filandians alike are excited to watch this partnership develop.

Beloved Community

Teton Habitat joins nationwide “Beloved Community” initiative to bring Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s vision of access, equality and opportunity for all into action.

 Habitat for Humanity joins The King Center to mobilize nationwide affordable housing work by gathering diverse community members to come together for a build day at The Grove.

Building on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s vision of the “Beloved Community,” Habitat for Humanity of the Greater Teton Area (Teton Habitat) announced plans today to honor King’s legacy through a series of projects in Teton County, Wyoming. Over the next year, in partnership with Habitat for Humanity International and The King Center’s MLK 50 Forward initiative, Teton  Habitat is renewing and strengthening its commitment to build a world where everyone has a decent place to live and the opportunity for a better future.

“Here at Teton Habitat we pride ourselves in our ability to bring large, diverse groups of people together to achieve a common goal— lending a hand and lifting others up!” exclaims Elizabeth Ferguson, Teton Habitat Outreach Coordinator.

The first Beloved Community Project will be a Beloved Community Build held on April 11th 2018 at The Grove jobsite located at 845 W. Snow King Ave. Teton Habitat’s local effort will build on work being performed by other Habitats across the country undertaking Beloved Community projects, including the construction of new affordable homes, critical home repairs and community revitalization initiatives. Teton Habitat is planning another Beloved Community Project for fall 2018.

“In 2018, as we mark the 50th anniversaries of Dr. King’s tragic death and the passage of the Fair Housing Act, we renew our pledge to make the concept of a Beloved Community a reality,” said Jonathan Reckford, CEO of Habitat for Humanity International. “This will never be a world of equality, of fairness, of human decency that leaves no room for poverty or prejudice or violence, unless we build it. And so we build.”

Habitat for Humanity is partnering with The King Center in Atlanta as it marks the 50th anniversary of King’s assassination.

“With every new home that Habitat for Humanity builds, we move one step closer to my father’s vision of the Beloved Community,” said Dr. Bernice A. King. “Since its founding, Habitat for Humanity has been lifting families up through God’s love and showing them the path to take control of their lives through homeownership. This year, we’re going to have an even more powerful voice for those families and future homeowners so that one day, everyone lives in the Beloved Community with agape love.”

Habitat for Humanity invites others to join in pledging to help build the Beloved Community. Read more about why Habitat is propelling this cause in an essay by Jonathan Reckford and Tjada McKenna, Chief Operating Officer by visiting habitat.org/takethepledge, and follow #BelovedCommunity to join the conversation. Stop by the Teton Habitat ReStore, 850 W. Broadway to take the pledge in person from April 1st– April 14th.

Featured Story from JH News & Guide 

By Allie Gross, Jackson Hole News & Guide

March 1st, 2018

Teton Habitat for Humanity is opening up applications for the next eight condos at The Grove phase 3 on Scott Lane and Snow King Avenue.

Prospective applicants must first attend a Habitat information session to learn more about the nonprofit’s program. The first of five information sessions is set for 6 p.m. Tuesday, March 20 at Hansen Hall in St. John’s Episcopal Church.

Information will also be available in Spanish.

Habitat executive director Kendra Heimbuck encouraged members of the community to come to the information sessions to learn more about the Grove and Habitat’s program.

“Because we do homes for purchase, a lot of members of our community will quickly rule themselves out and say ‘I can’t afford a house, or I’m not ready for homeownership,'” Heimbuck said, “not realizing that Habitat acts as the lender for our program, so we can really work with people on their affordability for purchasing a home.”

She said Habitat homes require no down payment, just $2,500 toward closing costs, and Habitat can work with different financial situations more flexibly than a conventional lender. The homes are purchased at a 0 percent interest rate for 30 years, and mortgage payments are set at less than 30 percent of a family’s income at the time of applying.

Additionally, the Grove homes are reserved for the county’s lowest income earners making 80 percent or less of area median income for Teton County. That’s equal to or less than $73,150 for a household of four.

Habitat homeowners are expected to put in 500 sweat equity hours towards building their own homes.

More details on qualifying and applying will be available at the information sessions.

“Please come, please learn more, and please don’t assume you’re not ready for owning a home because we might be able to work with you,” Heimbuck said.

The application process includes a review of a household’s finances, employment and current housing situation. Then a homeowner selection committee conducts interviews and a home visit to evaluate candidates based on need, ability to pay and willingness to partner with Habitat.

Applications are due May 15. Homeowners for the eight condos will be selected by the end of June, with a projected move-in date of winter 2020.

A townhouse on Hall Street is also open for applications.

Habitat broke ground on the first eight of the 24 planned three-bedroom Grove units at the start of summer 2017. The goal is for families to move into those condos in fall 2018.
