The Family Selection Committee for the Habitat 53° Chapter of Habitat for Humanity has announced the family who will purchase the home they will be building at 63 Green Street. Angela Bennett says she and her 10 year old son Austin are excited about being chosen. She says there are no words to explain what this means to her and her son. She adds this is going to be their first real home together and they’re just thrilled beyond words.
Habitat homes are sold to partner families with no down payment and are financed with no interest mortgages which are set to a maximum of 25 percent of their gross income. Angela and her family will also put in 350 hours of volunteer work in the community as well as towards building their home. She and Austin are already volunteering with the SPCA.
Habitat continues to fund raise and look for sponsorships to build the home.
