Mark's First Meeting
Habitat for Humanity and Our Projects Committee

Tacoma-Pierce County Habitat for Humanity has served low-income families in our community since 1985.  The local office is one of 1,300 Habitat affiliates nationally, all with the same vision of a world where everyone has a safe, decent place to live.  Tacoma Habitat has evolved through the years, starting with a small group building 1 house every year or two to now developing full communities.  Additionally, TPC Habitat operates three retail stores (Tacoma, Lakewood and Puyallup) that sell new or used housing goods and construction supplies to help fund the mission.  Elliot will talk about Habitat’s local work, particularly in light of the emerging affordable housing crisis.
