Bank of the Sierra continues partnership with Habitat for Humanity of Tulare/Kings Counties, Inc., with a $10,000 grant.

VISALIA (Oct. 26, 2021) — Bank of the Sierra recently renewed its long-standing partnership with Habitat for Humanity of Tulare/Kings Counties with a $10,000 Sierra Grant to support the nonprofit housing organization’s efforts. Since 2004, Bank of the Sierra has supported Habitat for Humanity in assisting families in communities throughout Tulare and Kings Counties.

In late 2021, Habitat for Humanity will begin construction on a new home in the City of Visalia thanks to the support from Bank of the Sierra, project sponsor RE/MAX Visalia and other community partners. This house marks the 69th family that Habitat has assisted in helping become first-time homeowners since its founding in 1994. This family, a hard-working mother and 2 boys, is grateful for the support from community partners in helping them fulfill a need for a safer and more stable living situation. They are ready to roll up their sleeves and swing hammers!

Through the Homeownership Program, Habitat is able to help hard-working families become first-time homeowners. Qualified family-partners contribute “sweat-equity” hours in assisting volunteers and staff with the construction of their home, leading to a purchase of the home via an affordable Habitat mortgage. Homeowner mortgage payments and generous financial contributions from the community enable Habitat to provide affordable housing opportunities and help families build strength, stability, and self-reliance.
