The homes are built in compliance with the American Disabilities Act (ADA), and include critical safety features like whole house fire suppression.SPS Habitat will sell the homes to qualified families at cost, with no charge for labor, and with a zero interest twenty-five year loan. By doing so, SPS Habitat will make the dream of home ownership a reality for thirty-three more Thurston County families.SPS Habitat is a local affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International. SPS Habitat is a volunteer-driven non-profit organization that partners with low-income families in Thurston County to build decent, affordable housing. SPS Habitat operates two Stores, one in Olympia and one in Yelm, which sell used tools, appliances, furniture, and building materials. All proceeds from the Stores support Habitat’s building program.Major partners in the Wood’s Glen project include the Thurston County HOME Consortium, Olympia Federal Savings Bank, and the City of Lacey. Anchor Bank has sponsored the first home. SPS Habitat anticipates that Wood’s Glen will be completed in 4 to 5 years.
