Many volunteers will work with Wiregrass Habitat for Humanity and the Blake family over the next few months to raise this home from the ground up. Volunteers will work on Saturdays and during the week to see this home built.
Through donations of money and materials and volunteer labor, Wiregrass Habitat for Humanity will be able to build the home and sell it at an affordable price. The Blake family will purchase the home with a no-profit loan, and their monthly mortgage payments will be used to continue the mission of eliminating substandard housing in the Wiregrass.
Amy Schutz, Executive Director with Wiregrass Habitat for Humanity, said "It is always a special day to break ground on our next home to be built. Being able to include not only our future homeowners, but those that are making this possible is a way for the homeowners and the community to see what we are able to do when we work together."
