Habitat to dedicate new home Saturday

April 16, 2010


Lawrence Habitat for Humanity will dedicate a new home on Saturday.

The home, 215 Comfort Lane in North Lawrence, is the second home dedicated in Lawrence this year and the 72nd since the organization began in Lawrence in 1989. The home will be dedicated to Trisha Powell and her two sons.

Habitat for Humanity helps families in need obtain housing. Families are required to contribute labor to the construction of their home and other Habitat activities.

Supported by volunteer labor and community donations, families purchase their homes for the cost of materials on a no-interest mortgage.

I'm happy that you get to move into your new home. Habitat for Humanity is a wonderful organization that has helped many people!

Huraah! A great organization with a great vision. They do need to watch for the "single", low income parents that shortly after moving into their new home...find their partner that has money and they move into their single parent, low income home. It just takes away from the people that really need this service.
