Welcome Natalie!
Please join us in welcoming Natalie Curfman as our new Grants Coordinator!

Hello Habitat Partners – my name is Natalie Curfman and I’m the new Grants Coordinator. It’s my opportunity to locate and apply for funding sources that can partner with your contributions. Together they keep Habitat providing the joy of new homes for low-income people in this Tri-County area. 

I am a social worker by training and have many years of experience serving in non-profits. Currently, I work part-time with Providence Supportive Housing in Yakima in addition to my work with Habitat. I really enjoy that both organizations seek to support low-income people in finding stability in housing. Balancing two jobs is a new adventure for me.
I have been married to my husband Silas for 24 years and am a proud mom of my daughter Adia (19 yr.) and son Aksel (12 yr.) We live in Sunnyside which is perfect since it’s in the middle between Yakima and the Tri-Cities. My idea of a perfect activity is grabbing a cup of coffee with someone and getting to know them better.

Matthew 25:37-40 is one of my favorite Bible passages. Looking forward to the final days it says, “Then the righteous will answer Him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.”

Thank you for living out this passage by supporting Habitat for Humanity. If you have any funding ideas you’d like to discuss feel free to call me at 509-943-5555 or email:
500 Hours Sweat Equity
Every Habitat homeowner must complete at least 500 hours of sweat equity before starting the closing process on their new home. Reaching 500 hours is such an exciting and important milestone to achieve in our homeownership program. As of April 24th, two homeowner partners completed all 500 hours of their sweat equity!

Sweat equity introduces the future homeowners to their neighbors, forms bonds between them that instill a sense of community, and teaches them the ins and outs of home maintenance. As their home takes shape, from the pouring of the foundation to the final stroke of paint, the family is present. Our partners move in with a deeper appreciation of the amount of work, people, time, and materials that went into building their new home of which their families can cherish for years to come.

500 hours in one year equates to almost 10 hours a week. On top of a full-time job, it is a huge accomplishment for all our families to complete this important step of the homeownership program.

Congratulations to...

December & Tee Soe
Hay Blut & Mwee Wah
304 S Cedar Ave – 90% complete. We will spend this month finishing up the interior and exterior and will dedicate this home on June 12th.
206 S Cedar Ave – This is Tri-Tech’s second home build since they returned to the “classroom.” We hope to finish the roof this week, which will allow us to move on to installing doors, windows and siding. We expect this home to be complete this fall.
204 S Cedar Ave – Right now this home is our “overflow” home, where we send crews when we don’t have enough tasks to keep everyone busy. We are currently awaiting a delivery of trusses so that we can complete the roof. This home will be completed this fall.
Alvina Street – This newly purchased parcel is located ½ block off Lewis street in east Pasco. Subcontractors are completing the infrastructure (sidewalks, sewer, water, electricity, communications). We will build 7 homes on this parcel in the next year or so.
