Last year we had more than 80 families and individuals contribute to Payson Area Habitat for Humanity under the Charitable Tax Credit. Those 80 supporters are personally responsible for the funds needed to build half of a unit at Longhorn Village! They made a huge difference in Payson by simply keeping their tax dollars here in Payson. Talk about an easy way to make a huge impact! I truly thank them from the bottom of my heart.
Last month we completed Phase II of the Longhorn Village Project. We now have one phase to go, but significant capital is needed before we can even get started. Due to the shortage of funds, I implore you to consider donating to PAHH with the Charitable Tax Credit.
PAHH is committed to providing decent, affordable housing for low income Rim Country residents.
We do not give handouts as each homeowner is required to perform between 300 to 500 hours of “sweat equity.” You wouldn’t believe the work that these homeowners put in while juggling work and family.
In addition, each homeowner still has a mortgage, and the money from the mortgages are then used to help build more homes.
This year we’re dreaming big and hoping for 150 contributors. That many would cover the cost of one entire home for a Payson family!
In an edition of the Payson Roundup you’ll notice a cut-out from PAHH that explains how you can contribute, please consider the difference you can make in the life of your neighbor.
