JACKSON HOLE, WYO – Habitat for Humanity of the Greater Teton Area (Teton Habitat) announced today it has received a $5,000 grant from Bank of the West.
The money will be used to support Phase III of Teton Habitat’s current home building project, The Grove. Initial work on the project began in June. Stage One will see the completion of the initial eight of 24 new homes. The first units to come online will be 1,200-sf, 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom condominiums in midtown Jackson.
“Bank of the West is proud to support Teton Habitat and develop housing solutions in the Greater Teton Area, and I’m thrilled the bank’s investment will directly benefit this vibrant community,” said Olga Salmina, branch manager of Bank of the West in Jackson. Salmina is a volunteer with Teton Habitat, and served on the family selection committee that helped to select the partner homeowners of The Grove’s first eight homes.
Kendra Heimbuck, Teton Habitat executive director, said, “We are so glad to have a significant relationship with one of our local businesses. This grant provides valuable fiscal support for the project and also extends the volunteer support from Olga and the Bank of the West team.”
