Neighborhood Nonprofit Housing is the first agency in the state of Utah to reach the milestone of building 215 self-help homes and the public is invited to help celebrate the accomplishment.Neighborhood Nonprofit Housing Executive Director Kim Datwyler says the first group will hold an open house Wednesday at the Park Place Subdivision, 250 North 600 West in Smithfield.Datwyler says there are 12 homeowners and the public gets to walk through all of the homes, talk to the owners/builders and learn more about the program.”This is a program where the families build 35 hours a week with a group until all of the homes are built,” Datwyler explains. “They worked about eight-and-a-half months on this group of 12 homes. So that’s quite incredible that they’ve been able to accomplish so much so quickly.”Datwyler says there has never been a foreclosure on one of these homes. She says there is a short program planned Wednesday at 2:30 p.m. at the Smithfield City Fire/EMS building at 325 West 100 North. State Senator Lyle Hillyard, R-Logan, is a strong supporter of the program and will be speaking at the event.
