ESP International is honored to have Cedar Valley Habitat for Humanity as the 2021 charity of the year.
Cedar Valley Habitat for Humanity (CVHFH) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing ministry dedicated to building and rehabilitating simple, decent, and affordable homes in partnership with families in need in Linn and Benton counties. Partner families make a down payment, invest hundreds of hours of sweat equity into the construction of their homes and other Habitat homes, and make monthly mortgage payments on a zero-interest loan. Since 1988, Cedar Valley Habitat for Humanity has built or rehabilitated more than 260 homes. Cedar Valley Habitat serves up to 20 families each year through a combination of new construction and home rehabilitation and exterior painting/repair projects.
Habitat for Humanity has shown that building homes do more than putting a roof over someone’s head. When families have a stable, affordable home, they can:
- Provide stability for their children
- Gain improved health, physical safety, and security
- Increase educational and job prospects
- Be engaged in their communities
Housing is important to the quality of life, health, and economic prosperity of the entire community.
