Local Habitat to dedicate 30th home on Aug. 24



Evergreen Habitat for Humanity will dedicate its 30th Clark County home on Aug. 24.

The dedication will be at 2 p.m. at 7001 N.E. 98th Ave. — the new address of Doug West and his two children, 17-year-old Kody and 15-year-old Cheyenne.

West, a truck driver for Concrete Alternatives, and his children have been looking forward to a new home since their journey began two years ago, according to a news release from the nonprofit organization.

The West family home was made possible through funding support from three different groups:

o Churches in Partnership, made up of five Presbyterian churches — First Presbyterian, Columbia Presbyterian, St. John’s Presbyterian, Cascade Presbyterian and East Woods Presbyterian churches. (This is the partnership’s second home.)

o Four Methodist churches — First United Methodist, Salmon Creek Methodist, Ridgefield Community Methodist and Orchards United Methodist churches.

o Ginn Realty Group/The Hasson Co.

Another contributor, the Grocery Outlet on Fourth Plain Boulevard, will be on hand to fill the cupboards with move-in necessities.

Evergreen Habitat for Humanity sells homes at no profit with zero-percent mortgages after the partner families complete sweat-equity hours.
