On June 28th, 2023 Nevada County Habitat for Humanity celebrated and recognized the impact and generosity of Habitat.
With the continued and consistent support of Habitat donors from Fiscal Year 2020-2022, Nevada County Habitat completed the final home at Heritage Oaks, began and completed the Park Place neighborhood, and rehabbed four homes. This generosity along with the dedication of our volunteers led to 17 people in our community having safe, decent, and affordable housing.
“The impact our donors make in this community is truly remarkable. We would not be able to do this work without their support. Construction and community development is becoming more complex and costly. Without the support of so many generous people and businesses in this community, it just wouldn’t happen.” Said Lorraine Larson, Executive Director
People and businesses who financially support Habitat in Nevada County give generously, sponsor events, donate new materials to building homes, donate merchandise to the ReStore, and more. “We are fortunate to have a strong network of people in our community that support building safe, decent, and affordable Habitat homes. We look forward to another amazing year of building, we truly could not achieve our mission without you,” says Jennifer Cordova, Development Director.
With gratitude, Habitat recognized outstanding members of their community by presenting special awards to philanthropic leaders. CJ Cavet received the Habitat Humanitarian Award which recognized her leadership in philanthropy and volunteerism. “One of the things that I’ve always wanted to do when I retired was to give back and build houses for people who, without Habitat, can’t afford it. Thank you very much for recognizing this,” said CJ upon receiving the award. Philip Vardara received the Cornerstone Award which recognized him as a leader in philanthropy and in our broader community. Philip remarked, “it’s not just me. I love supporting this organization just like all of you. So thanks to everybody here for what you do, for what you give, for the time you spend, it’s greatly appreciated. Our folks wouldn’t have houses if it wasn’t for all of us. So thank you.” Tim and Becky Robinson and Robinson Enterprises were recipients of the Golden Hammer Award which recognized them as leaders and philanthropists in the business community. “We wish we could be out there pounding nails. I don’t have that kind of skill, but we support the way we feel we can support,” said Tim. Across the board, this year’s recipients were surprised and joyful to be recognized for their support of Habitat.
A special thank you to River Highlands Ranch for the opportunity to bring together Habitat’s financial supporters at their beautiful venue located in Smartsville, CA, to the Hilltop Celts for providing music, and to Lindy and Gordon Beatie.
