On Thursday, 16 families will be celebrating the completion of the homes they helped build in the Maple View Subdivision, 2720 South 1100 West in Nibley. Executive Director Kim Datwyler of Neighborhood Non-Profit Corporation says 350 homes have been built locally through NNHC and nationwide some 50,000 homes have been built in the self-help program.
Datwyler says the families save somewhere between $15,000 to $30,000 depending on how much work they do. She says the families can also participate in the new Financial Freedom counseling program and there is no charge.
“You get to meet with a housing counselor, set goals for what you would like to accomplish,” Datwyler explains. “If one of your goals is saving toward a down payment or paying off debt, every month that you meet those goals Neighborhood Nonprofit provides a financial match.
“You can participate in the program 12-18 months and walk away with an incentive in terms of money that we match with yours.”
Datwyler says there is a recognition ceremony at 2 p.m. at Nibley City Hall followed by the open house and tour of the homes.
