Huntington County Habitat for Humanity is delighted to announce that the groundbreaking ceremony for the 25th Habitat home in Huntington County will be on July 31, at 12:00 p.m., at 66 Green Hill Court in Huntington.
Everyone is invited to participate. There will be a short service and a picnic lunch provided by Kentucky Fried Chicken.
The next Habitat homeowners, Melissa and her daughter, Ashley, have started to complete 250 hours each of “sweat equity” in preparation for home ownership. They attend Abundant Life Tabernacle Church in Wabash under the leadership of Rev. Mike Jones.
The family’s need for decent housing stems from their multiple health issues and requirements. Their need for affordable housing stems from their fixed incomes. A Habitat home will improve their lives in part by reducing their exposure to smoke and dust and pollens. Their payments on the 20-year, 0%-interest, no-profit mortgage will be affordable in spite of their limited incomes.
It takes many, many hands and hearts to prepare for and to build a Habitat home. Local construction partners have included but are not limited to United Technologies Electronic Controls, Wells Fargo Foundation, Habitat ReStore, Mayor Brooks Fetters and the City of Huntington, Zahm Excavating, All Phase Plumbing, Duke Energy, Builder’s Mart, Schneider Electric, Huntington Heating & Cooling, Finishline Interiors, ProSeal Insulation Corporation, Lehman Floor Covering, Huntington Nursery and local Master Gardeners.
