Home Rehabilitation

Chase House, Everett

Most recently, we completed the rehabilitation of a home donated by Chase Bank in downtown Everett. Habitat homes are generally sponsored by local faith-based groups, businesses, foundations and civic organizations. Sponsor support covers the upfront construction costs required to build/rehabilitate the home. Costs are kept low through the use of volunteer labor and some donated materials. Major sponsors for this Everett home included Chase Bank, the Henry M. Jackson Foundation, and the Rotary Club of Everett.

The rehabilitation project took approximately six months and more than 50 group and individual volunteers to complete.

On December 7, 2013, Habitat celebrated the completion of a rehabilitated home in Marysville. The new homeowners, Vera and Nikolay Khrapko, thanked all those who worked so hard to help them reach this goal. Over 40 volunteers led by Marla Patterson, Habitat’s Vice President of Construction and Board Member, and John Herrera, Habitat’s Volunteer Site Supervisor, worked side by side with the family for over 2,000 hours to refurbish this home. The property was generously donated by Bank of America in early 2013.

Through donations of money and materials and volunteer labor, Habitat for Humanity for Snohomish County was able to refurbish the home and sell it at an affordable price. The Khrapko’s purchased the home with their contribution of 500 hours of sweat equity and a no-profit loan. Their monthly mortgage payments will be used to build more Habitat houses.
