What is a GuideStar Rating?
Accountability- an important public expectation for nonprofit organizations. GuideStar, the world’s largest source of information on nonprofit organizations, provides a platform where nonprofits can share basic contact and financial information found in the IRS Form 990. Nonprofits can provide additional information such as how they are governed and the programs and services they offer. This transparency helps prospective donors and funding organizations learn about the organization.

By creating and maintaining an organizational GuideStar profile, we share important information about our organization. This information also allows us to earn The GuideStar Seal of Transparency, which is not a rating or ranking system. However, it is used to indicate the nonprofit’s commitment to transparency.

We are happy to share that the L-C Habitat for Humanity has earned a Platinum Seal of Transparency , the highest level for transparency recognition, for including financial information, goals, progress and results in its profile. If you are interested in finding out more about us please visit our profile at .

Wishing you a safe and fun summer,
Executive Director, L-C Valley Habitat for Humanity

Kick-off of Affordable Repair Program
Due to two recent grant awards from the Idaho Community Foundation and the Twin County United Way , the L-C Valley Habitat for Humanity will be launching an Affordable Home Repair Program (AHRP) this summer. The AHRP would be an extension of our core program, building affordable housing. Moreover, it would allow us to serve a different population (existing homeowners) to help them stay in their home.

The AHRP will provide interior or exterior work to address health and safety issues or code violations that does not exceed a total $3,500. It will include such activities as: a change to or repair of materials or components; a reconfiguration of space, such as widening a doorway; a modification for accessibility or repainting of the residence. This project will help low-income homeowners maintain an affordable place to live. For more information on this program please visit our website, or call our administrative office at 509.758.7568.
Partnership with the City of Clarkston on Affordable Home Repairs
On June 2, the City of Clarkston applied for a Washington Community Development Block Grant, identifying L-C Valley Habitat for Humanity as its program administrator. While award of notification will not be until September 2020, both parities are looking forward to the opportunity to work together on a two-year program to complete 16 home repairs in the city of Clarkston. According to Deb Snyder, L-C Valley Habitat Executive Director, "We are grateful to Mayor Lawrence, the Clarkston City Council and the Clarkston Public Works Department for the opportunity to partner on this grant application."

At this time we are asking that customers please respect others space and follow social distancing guidelines. Store employees and volunteers are here to assist you and are wearing gloves and masks to help keep our customers safe.
