Habitat for Humanity Announces New Habitat Home Groundbreaking

Dubois County (NNDC):

Habitat for Humanity of Dubois County (HFHDC) will be breaking ground on its eighteenth home in Dubois County! Join them at 3 PM on Saturday, August 29, 2020 for a live stream of the celebration. You will learn about what this new home means to the future Habitat Homeowner, hear from special guests and volunteers, and learn more about homeownership through HFHDC. Celebrating its 25th year anniversary in 2020, HFHDC has a mission of providing a “hand up” to people in the community to acquire and own decent and affordable housing, both through new home builds and home repairs.

The new location will be located at Skyline Subdivision Lot 60 (Birk Drive) in Jasper. The public is invited.

New this year, this home will be built through a partnership with Patoka Valley School Cooperative and Vincennes University-Jasper to support the efforts of high students looking to enter the local workforce by having a joint build process with Habitat volunteers, school instructors and students. They will learn and practice skills from the classroom in a real-world situation and be able to be part of something they help build that will last.

“This build represents more than a house, it provides an opportunity to our future homeowner and her family to have a place where they can feel secure and thrive,” said Executive Director Michael Richard. “Through new and existing partnerships, volunteers and the generous support of Dubois County, we can fulfill Habitat’s mission of putting God’s love into action.”

This event will be streamed live on the Habitat for Humanity of Dubois County Facebook page at facebook.com/DuboisHabitat. For more information or to support the build, please call Executive Director Michael Richard at 812-704-8441 or michael@duboishabitat.org.

Habitat for Humanity of Dubois County believes that all hard-working individuals and families should have access to the benefit and stability of homeownership. Habitat for Humanity of Dubois County partners with qualified families and community members to assist in providing affordable housing. Homeowners are selected based on their need for housing, ability to repay a no-profit mortgage, and willingness to partner with Habitat. The low cost of our homes is made possible through generous donors, dedicated volunteers, and ongoing community support. The Habitat ReStore, located at 4232 S. 170 E. (SR 162) in Huntingburg, sells donated furniture and building materials to help fund operations. Habitat for Humanity’s mission is to put God’s love into action by bringing people together to build homes, community, and hope.
