Jacobs Land Purchase


Pledging to the Jacobs land purchase and affordable housing project

You have an opportunity to be part of making the dream of a home possible for working families. The United Church of Underhill is purchasing 9 acres from Phil Jacobs to pursue an affordable housing project in collaboration with Habitat for Humanity. Your donation would help make this possible.

The land purchase down payment and project startup funds are needed by November 30th, 2020.

Your donation towards the Jacobs Land project supports a collaboration between our church and Habitat for Humanity that offers:

  • a chance for our children to afford homes in our town
  • a partnership with low income families to become homeowners
  • home ownership that is a critical part of breaking the cycle of poverty
  • a chance for Habitat families to meet neighbors and build “sweat equity” in their home by working a minimum of 200-400 hours on their home
  • Habitat houses that remain affordable forever, meaning through changes of ownership of the home

All funds will initially go to the United Church of Underhill where they will be transferred to the Land project in full. You can make your pledge now, then provide the funds to the church before the November 30th due date. We will contact you with the details.
