Local Family Celebrates Ground Blessing with Local Business Clark Land Surveying, Longtime Supporter of Pikes Peak Habitat for Humanity
On Saturday, April 24, 2021 Pikes Peak Habitat for Humanity (PPHFH) will host a ground blessing and groundbreaking celebration for Lian and Zen’s family.
In addition to being a new house for Lian, Zen, and their three children, this house is also being built in appreciation of Clark Land Surveying’s 20+ years of support of PPHFH. Clark Land Surveying began operations in 1997, and since 1999 they have regularly donated surveying and development services to PPHFH, helping build homes for more than 100 families in El Paso County.

As with all Habitat homeowners, the family must show (1) a need for affordable housing such as overcrowding, unhealthy or unsanitary conditions, unaffordable rent, unsafe neighborhood; (2) a willingness to partner with Habitat by completing homebuyer education (credit counseling; budgeting; estate planning; protecting assets; and more) as well as investing 200 "sweat equity" hours to build their house; and (3) the ability to purchase the house and pay the mortgage.
