Habitat for Humanity, Jackson, WY
Habitat for Humanity of the Greater Teton Area is a non-profit, ecumenical Christian organization that works in partnership with families in need to create simple, decent home-ownership opportunities.
Habitat for Humanity of the Greater Teton Area was formed in 1995 under the umbrella of Habitat for Humanity International, which has been operating since 1976. Since then, we have built 31 homes in Teton County, WY. The homes are sold to partner families at no profit with an interest-free mortgage issued by Habitat.
Chosen families work closely with us, investing 500 hours of their own labor, or "sweat-equity" in building their homes and those of their neighbors. Volunteer partners do approximately 80% of the work on Habitat homes. Each year, thousands of volunteers from churches, youth groups, colleges, corporations and civic organizations give their time and energy to build Habitat homes.
