Oct 1, 2012 is World Habitat Day!

 

In December 1985, the United Nations General Assembly declared the first Monday in October to be World Habitat Day. 

The purpose

 

  • To call attention to the need for better shelter around the world.
  • To let it be known that affordable, adequate housing should be a priority everywhere.
  • To change the systems, policies and attitudes that lead to poverty housing, and involve partners in solutions.

 


World Habitat Day begins on Monday, Oct. 1, 2012

This year’s theme, Many Homes, One Community, will call attention to the pivotal role of housing in a neighborhood’s progression.

Habitat for Humanity supporters around the globe will participate in special activities that highlight the need for safe, decent and affordable shelter.

Build Update: 8/9/2012

The Sandoval build is continuing along.

Currently we are working on putting the utilities put in.  The City of Elko recently did some work on B street adjacent to the property, so we are working with the city to get permission to cut the street to put in sewer access.  We are currently working on locating an individual or organization to help donate a backhoe to put in the sewer trench and also do some grading on the property so we can install security fencing.

Additionally, we are hoping to get power put in on the property so that we can start other build related work without the use of noisy generators that would disrupt neighboring homes.  We are expecting to have power put in within the next 4 weeks.

We continue to need the support of our community in the form of materials, money, and volunteer time.  If you’re interested and able to assist us, please let us know.

Bike and Build visits Elko

How would you like to ride your bicycle from one
end of the country to the other, stopping to help build Habitat
houses on the way, and finishing your ride with a big building
project? This is exactly what dozens and dozens of college students
did this summer!

 

 

Bike and Build at Elko First Presbyterian

 

The team that came through Elko in August 2007 was on its way to San Francisco, riding from New England. They traveled fifty to eighty miles every day, so stopping for an extra day to lend a hand at a build was like a little vacation for them!

The Bike and Build trips are evidence of a national trend for college students—taking vacation time and doing something of lasting significance. In talking with some of the riders, one gets a sense that there is hope for this next generation yet! They express a desire to make a difference, and they see Habitat as the perfect venue for their efforts. Riding across the country is quite an adventure—an experience that will change the way they interact with the world forever.
