Habitat for Humanity affiliates complete merger
December 18, 2012
Habitat for Humanity of East King County — builder of residences in the Issaquah Highlands — and Habitat for Humanity of Seattle/South King County merged to form Habitat for Humanity Seattle-King County.
In Issaquah, the East King County affiliate built the 10-unit Magnolia Village complex in the highlands. Habitat for Humanity of East King County dedicated the final residences in the complex in April.
The nonprofit organization plans to continue to focus on building and renovating homes to provide affordable housing opportunities for low-income families. The merged affiliate is led by CEO Kirk Utzinger.
Together, both Habitat for Humanity organizations partnered with organizations in 17 King County cities to build more than 300 homes.
