Another local family to get Habitat home
Saturday, August 09, 2014 5:00 AM
Habitat for Humanity has made the dream of home ownership a reality for more than 300,000 people around the world.
Locally, the Jefferson County chapter will hand over the keys to a new home on Marine Street in Hanover to the Mack family on Sunday.
Habitat for Humanity provides a wonderful opportunity for those who cannot afford a home on their own. But make no mistake, Habitat doesn't just turn over the keys.
Selected families are expected to work on the building project - at least 250 hours per adult. And to be selected, the family must be able to take on an interest-free mortgage provided by Habitat. The mortgage payments go toward building the next Habitat house.
As the local chapter grows, its needs also grow. Habitat creates additional revenue with a retail store on Lanier Drive where some real bargains can be found.
Habitat for Humanity has a proven track record. We wish the Mack family the best in their new home.
I agree there are some people in our community that need a little extra help. But this one has me a little bit annoyed. this father has a job that he can get 40 plus hrs a week in the last 6 months he received a large insurance settlement check and he is attending college . seriously give me a break this dude does not need a free home
