100th Home Celebration!
April 21, 2015
The Closing and dedications were a great success! So many volunteers, families and community members shared in our joy of four more families joining our Habitat family! This was topped off by one of our home being the 100th home Mesilla Valley Habitat for Humanity has contributed to the City of Las Cruces. Thank you Las Cruces for all your support!

The ground breaking, wall rasing and building of our 100th home milestone in our community is moving along quickly, and soon the Rios family will be the proud new owners!
Reaching 100 homes built is the greatest honor and privilege for our non-profit to help and benefit the wonderful City of Las Cruces.
Mesilla Valley Habitat has been working hand in hand with our community for over 27 years helping people who deserve a home but could never dream of becoming a homeowner without our program!
Thank you to all our sponsers, volunteers and staff for making this milestone dream come true for Mesilla Valley Habitat for Humanity.

You’ll soon hear the buzzing of saws and pounding of hammers, but first you’re invited to hear words of thanksgiving and celebration during a groundbreaking ceremony to mark the beginning of construction of Mesilla Valley Habitat for Humanity’s 100th home. Together, Habitat will help the Rios Family realize their dream to become first-time homeowners. The event will take place at 12:00p.m., Wednesday, November 19th at 4971 Wendall Road, Las Cruces NM 88012.
Together with community partners and volunteers, we invite you to join us and the Rios Family during this grand celebration. Thanks to the generous support of local sponsors, businesses, community and faith group volunteers, Mesilla Valley Habitat for Humanity will soon be able to celebrate its 100th home. Partnerships like these reflect the commitment and support these businesses have to building stronger communities and change in the lives of people who need safe, affordable housing. For the past 27 years, Mesilla Valley Habitat for Humanity has been building homes with and for people in need. Our dream is a community where everyone has a decent place to live. To date we have build 95 homes, and are excited to reach our 100th home milestone.
The Rios Family is more than eager to begin construction of their new home. They have already made great progress towards their 500 hours of “sweat equity”, a key requirement of Habitat for Humanity’ housing program. They will also repay a no-interest mortgage, illustrating Habitat for Humanity’s mission to give deserving families a “hand up” rather than a “hand out”.
You are also invited to join the Habitat partner family, City of Las Cruces officials, our board members and staff, volunteers, and other Habitat supporters during a wall-raising ceremony and a dedication ceremony to mark the beginning and end of construction. These events will help us celebrate what we have all accomplished together through Habitat. The tentative dates are listed below:
