Habitat invites community to home dedication Feb. 19
Habitat for Humanity of Anderson County invites the community to join us in celebrating affordable homeownership with Rosalie, as we gather to dedicate her new Habitat home.
The dedication will be held at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 19, at 2503 Magaha Drive, Anderson.
Rosalie is a 56-year-old breast cancer survivor. She works at AnMed, and this will be her first time ever owning a home
. As a partner with Habitat, she completed 300 sweat-equity hours - she took financial education classes and volunteered with Habitat in the ReStore and on the construction site. She helped to build her own home, as well as the homes of other future Habitat homeowners.
"I like volunteering in the ReStore and I just like going out on the work sites and helping to build other people's homes," Rosalie said. "I would refer anyone I know who wants to own a home to check out Habitat. They work with you, giving you time to save, taking the classes, volunteering. It's all about giving back."
Habitat for Humanity is an ecumenical Christian housing ministry that helps people build strength, stability and self-reliance through decent, affordable shelter. With help from donors and volunteers, we build homes; those homes are then sold to our partners with no profit through a zero-interest mortgage. Seeking to put God's love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.
