Habitat for Humanity Summit and Wasatch Counties’ 2023 Impact

Habitat for Humanity Summit and Wasatch Counties’ 2023 Impact

As another year comes to a close, we’re thrilled to look back at all the work Habitat for Humanity Summit and Wasatch Counties have accomplished and the 2023 impact we’ve been able to make together on our communities and those who live and work here. 

As one of the world’s largest non-profit organizations, Habitat for Humanity’s mission is to build homes, communities, and hope. We assist people and families in need of affordable and decent housing because we believe that everyone deserves a place to call home. In Summit and Wasatch Counties, the year 2023 marked significant milestones for our communities and made a significant impact on people’s lives. Read on to learn more about everything we accomplished this year and the impact of our work.

Helping Locals become Homeowners 

In 2023, a number of families were selected to have a new home built thanks to the dedication and effort of our communities. We provided these families with a chance to become homeowners and build a better future for themselves and their children. Our goal is to ensure that the homes are built to last and provide a safe and comfortable living environment for families so that they become thriving members of the community.

Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers were vital to the success of our mission in 2023. 177  volunteers donated more than 3,200 hours of their time to Habitat. They offered support and resources to potential homeowners, and brought their skills, expertise, and hearts to the table to build a better world—one home at a time. We couldn’t do our work without the dedicated community members who get involved and make a significant difference in our communities. From working at ReStore to everyone who donated or decorated a tree or holiday item for our Holiday Tree Auction event or pitched in to ensure the Overall Ball was a resounding success, we thank you. 

Grant and Donation Impact

Our organization received monetary and in-kind donations from businesses, individuals, and groups that enabled us to accomplish our yearly goals. These donations were used to purchase building materials, pay for construction costs, and fund classes on financial education. These donations speak volumes about the generosity of the community and the importance placed on our mission.

The contributions made by donors had a significant impact on our communities in 2023. In addition to the record-breaking $208,000 raised during the Overall Ball, individual and corporate donors contributed enough monetary and in-kind donations to build the equivalent of three homes.

In addition, Habitat for Humanity Summit and Wasatch Counties was also awarded a $50,000 grant from Promontory Foundation. The $50,000 high-impact grant will be used to construct a porte-cochere at its Park City ReStore location.

Donations, whether monetary or in-kind are accepted throughout the year. You can also consider making a planned gift to our organization as well.

Outreach and Awareness within Our Communities

By working within Summit and Wasatch Counties, we build and support strong relationships within these communities. Our team collaborates with local agencies, businesses, and individuals to build homes, provide financial education, and offer volunteer opportunities to those who live and work here. Together, our efforts and the resulting houses built for families who now call them homes create an opportunity to raise awareness about the importance of affordable housing in Utah. 

Working to bring together different organizations and supporters to achieve this common goal brings further attention to the housing crisis and the need for solutions along the Wasatch Back. Helping to educate the public about housing affordability for families encourages people to take action in their local community. 

Thank You for Making 2023 Memorable

2023 saw more families experience the life-changing moment of becoming homeowners. Our communities were strengthened as families were able to contribute and participate in the activities that affect their daily lives—including education, civic engagement, and community events. Our volunteers, donors, and supporters were united by a common goal: to build homes, communities, and hope. 

If you’d like to learn more about how you can help further our mission in 2024, we’d love to hear from you.
