TO RECOGNIZE HABITAT FOR HUMANITY OF GREENVILLE COUNTY ON THE CONSTRUCTION OF ITS THREE HUNDREDTH HOME, AND TO HONOR THE ORGANIZATION FOR CONTINUING TO FOSTER STRONGER FAMILIES AND NEIGHBORHOODS IN GREENVILLE COUNTY.
Whereas, the members of the South Carolina General Assembly are pleased to learn that Habitat for Humanity is embarking on the completion of its three hundredth home building in Greenville County; and
Whereas, because a lack of decent, affordable housing forces low-income families to live in substandard rental conditions, often in dangerous neighborhoods, Habitat Greenville was chartered in 1985 to assist in the provision of affordable housing for those in Greenville County who could not ordinarily afford to purchase a home; and
Whereas, through affordable, energy-efficient home construction for low-income families, Habitat Greenville aims to eliminate poverty housing and the social and economic blight it fosters; and
Whereas, through donations of labor, money, and materials, the homes built by Habitat Greenville are truly affordable homes, and because families work to build their homes and the homes of others, they receive interest-free mortgages; and
Whereas, Habitat Greenville strengthens the lives of current and future generations by providing affordable and sustainable homeownership opportunities through partnerships within the community in order to serve qualified families; and
Whereas, the members of the South Carolina General Assembly are grateful for the scholarly work of Habitat for Humanity of Greenville County, teaching and setting an outstanding example of South Carolinians who meet the needs of their community by working toward a common goal. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:
That the members of the South Carolina General Assembly, by this resolution, recognize Habitat For Humanity of Greenville County on the construction of its three hundredth home, and honor the organization for continuing to foster stronger families and neighborhoods in Greenville County.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to Timothy A. Brett.
