Clark County Habitat Store Celebrates 2nd Anniversary Sale - 07/22/24

Vancouver, WA – Evergreen Habitat for Humanity is celebrating the 2nd Anniversary Sale at the Clark County Habitat Store on Friday, August 2. The Store will be open regular hours on the day of the event, 10am to 6pm.   

This is the one day of the year that everything in the Store will be 50% off. Customers can enjoy free popcorn and purchase shaved ice from Kona Ice for a cool refreshment as they shop! The first 50 customers will receive a $10 gift card to the Store. Currently, the Store is only accepting debit/credit cards for purchases.  

Open to the public, the Clark County Habitat Store sells gently used home furniture, goods, art, lighting, and home building materials such as cabinets, flooring, tools, and more. It is also a donation center for the community to donate their gently used home goods, furniture, and building materials by either dropping off at the donation dock or scheduling a pickup with a flat service fee of $20. On the day of the event, the donation dock will be closed due to high demand within the Store but will reopen the next day. 

Shop the Store that builds homes. All proceeds support Evergreen Habitat’s mission of building affordable homes in Clark County such as the in-progress Washougal home and our nine-home subdivision, Johnson Village.

Evergreen Habitat for Humanity Announces New 32 Cottage-Style Homes (Photo) - 07/16/24

Vancouver, WA -- Evergreen Habitat for Humanity, a local nonprofit organization dedicated to providing affordable housing, is excited to announce a significant step in deepening its community impact in Clark County. The organization is planning their largest community home build project that is upcoming, 132nd Cottage Homes.  

The 132nd Cottage Homes will soon provide housing for 32 future homeowners. The subdivision is designed with thoughtful consideration for gathering spaces and green areas with cottage-style two-story home builds demonstrated in the site plans. This project is inspired by the organization’s commitment to fostering community and addressing the pressing need for affordable housing in Clark County.   

“The 132nd Cottage Homes project not only means creating 32 more homeownership opportunities for families in Clark County, but it represents significant growth of Evergreen Habitat which leads to a greater impact in our community.  We’re so proud to say that this is the largest home building project in our history, and we are not stopping there. We continue to explore innovative ways to better serve more people in our community.” says Josh Townsley, CEO. 

We are deeply grateful for the generous support from the Ed and Dollie Lynch Fund at the Community Foundation for Southwest Washington, which is instrumental in supporting us to expand our community outreach through this project. Like many of our home building projects, it is the support of volunteers, community partners, and donors that come forth to help us make this stride. Community partners who share our vision like the Cowlitz Tribal Foundation, whose gift helps support the infrastructure of the development, that make an impact on the strides in our work. 

The 32 cottage-style homes will be part of Habitat’s Home Trust program. As part of this commitment, the Habitat Home Trust program ensures the preservation of affordable homeownership by focusing on permanent affordability. All the houses within the Home Trust program will only be resold to another qualifying homebuyer, safeguarding the homes from inflating housing costs. These cottage homes fall under this program with the mortgage determined based on affordability criteria for the homebuyer. This program guarantees if the homeowner decides to sell in the future, the home will always be sold to another qualifying homebuyer. In a time when housing costs are rising and homeownership feels unattainable, Habitat’s Home Trust program offers a solution to support opportunities in Clark County. If you or someone you know is interested in applying for the homeownership program, visit ehfh.org to sign up for an orientation and get started on the process!  

The project is due to begin in Winter 2024. This story will continue to develop with updates and volunteer opportunities to get involved in the building project.
