President & Executive Director Letter

Dear Habitat Friends,

As a community, we face the crucial challenge of providing viable housing options for our workforce  as demand continues to outpace affordable supply. We are proud of the progress Teton Habitat made this year. This steady and determined progress has guided our organization for the past twelve months.  The Grove, a 24-home project and Teton Habitat’s largest to date, remained on schedule, under budget, and reached the halfway point of construction. Upon final completion in June 2021, 35 adults and 47 children will have a place to call home at The Grove. 

Strong volunteerism and generous financial support from the individuals and organizations recognized in this report are the key components to the timely completion and affordable nature of Habitat homes. We are inspired by the 10,571 hours logged by Habitat volunteers in fiscal year 2019. We are so thankful for the funding we receive through donations not only to the Grove, but also to our general operations.  

We would be remiss not to recognize the contributions from our board of directors, committee members, and staff. Their dedication and enthusiasm are invaluable to keeping our momentum. 

We are grateful to all of you for committing your time, money and effort to the mission of this organization. In the coming year, Teton Habitat will continue to focus resources on the successful completion of The Grove, and filling a pipeline of housing projects looking forward. As you scroll through this annual report, please join us in celebrating our successes of this past year.

The Habitat Model

Habitat builds homes in partnership with hardworking families in the Greater Teton Area and helps build stronger families and neighborhoods through homeowner education and by partnering with donors and volunteers to construct attractive, affordable homes. Homes are sold at no profit to pre-selected partner families and individuals with an interest-free loan to ensure affordable monthly payments. Homeowners are required to contribute at least 500 hours of “sweat equity”, save for closing costs, and take a series of homeowner education classes in order to purchase the home. Habitat also runs the Habitat for Humanity ReStore, which sells donated building supplies, home furnishings and appliances to help fund Habitat’s program.

Meet Our Future Grove Homebuyers

Heather Cosby

For me, what it means to have the opportunity to partner with Habitat for Humanity building a home in the town where I have spent most of my adult life is a dream realized. I moved to the Tetons when I was just 21 years old. I have lived, loved and worked in this valley giving it my heart. To have the opportunity to provide a home for my boys to live in and come back to when they are grown is what I have always hoped for. For our family and for my boys to have a home that is safe and secure is a true blessing for them and will provide them with such a positive foundation to build on as they grow into fine young men.”

Michelle Knobe

It means roots will be planted! After being in Jackson for over 10 years now, I know my family will finally have the stability we need to thrive! I feel very fortunate for my children to be raised in such a giving and supportive community!”

Betsy Kelsik

“It is truly a dream come true to have been given the opportunity to own my own home in this magical valley! I feel so incredibly lucky that I will soon have a safe, stable and affordable place to call home for my daughter and myself. To know that I will no longer have to endure the stress and worry of the Jackson housing struggle is huge. I am really beyond grateful to the Habitat organization for providing these opportunities to those of us in need of a hand up so that we may better the quality of life for our families and allow us to live and thrive in this wonderful community.”

Faraday Musselman

“We are overwhelmed with gratitude for this opportunity. This will make it possible for my son and I to build a secure life for ourselves in this wonderful town we call home.”

Nancy Sanchez

We are very happy, this is a huge step in our life. Thank you so much for selecting our family. It is an inexplicable feeling and instills a great sense of security to provide a home for my children. This will not be easy, though we have the energy and effort to make this dream come true. On behalf of our tiny family, we thank everyone who contributed to this project from the  bottom of our hearts.”

The Susano-Martinez Family

“Having a Habitat Home means providing a secure future for our children. It means working harder for them to be able to have access to a great education. It’s an opportunity to watch them grow in a safe place where they can play, learn, and reach their full potential. Having a home is a dream come true.”

Ginger Eva

“Having a habitat home means security for my family and me. No more stress over changing schools for Cooper and Tessa. This home changes everything!”

Esther Montiel-Moreno

”We would love to have stability and less worries in a home that we can call our own. Our partnership through Habitat is the possibility to make our dreams come true.”
