The Greater Las Vegas Association of REALTORS (GLVAR) presented Habitat for Humanity Las Vegas with a $100,000 donation on Feb. 25, in sponsorship of a new home.
The three-bedroom home will be the 13th Habitat Las Vegas house that GLVAR has supported over the years. In addition to providing full funding for the construction, GLVAR’s members also will help build the home.
The new home will be adjacent to the six single-family homes Habitat Las Vegas completed on Merze Avenue and Ward Drive, as part of Habitat’s neighborhood revitalization efforts in Henderson’s Pittman region.
Since 1991, Habitat Las Vegas has provided simple, decent and affordable homes for low-income families, in addition to helping transform and strengthen our communities throughout Southern Nevada. 
In addition to meeting income requirements, working families who qualify for Habitat’s homeownership program must perform 300 hours of volunteer “sweat equity” building other Habitat homes, including the one they will eventually own.
