Led by GLVAR President Scott Beaudry, GLVAR members and Habitat for Humanity volunteers worked together to build this house. GLVAR donated $100,000 to fund the project as part of its commitment to providing homeownership opportunities to those who have undergone Habitat’s stringent qualification criteria. Not only did new owner Marian Galinato undergo financial training and mortgage management, but she also contributed 300 hours of “sweat equity” to help build her brand new home, and homes for others.
The three-bedroom home is the 13th Habitat Las Vegas house that GLVAR has supported over the years. The new home is adjacent to the six single-family homes Habitat Las Vegas completed on Merze Avenue and Ward Drive, as part of Habitat’s neighborhood revitalization efforts in Henderson’s Pittman region.
WHEN: Housewarming ceremony begins at 10 a.m. on Monday, Sept. 26.
