New Habitat for Humanity home dedicated in Henderson

Posted at 10:54 PM, Oct 11, 2016

Habitat for Humanity dedicated a three-bedroom home to a new homeowner late last month.

On Monday, Sept. 26, the Greater Las Vegas Association of REALTORS, in partnership with Habitat for Humanity Las Vegas, dedicated a Habitat home to Marian Galinato.
The home dedication ceremony was attended by GLVAR President Scott Beaudry, GLVAR members and Habitat for Humanity Las Vegas executives, along with volunteers who worked together to build the house. GLVAR donated $100,000 to fund the project as part of its commitment to providing homeownership opportunities to those who have undergone Habitat’s stringent qualification criteria.

New owner Galinato contributed 300 hours of “sweat equity” to help build her brand new home and homes for others as part of Habitat’s homeownership program.
The three-bedroom home is the 13th Habitat Las Vegas house that GLVAR has supported over the years.

The new home is 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.
