Three more Habitat homes are being built on a foundation of faith
It's going to be a great summer on the corner of Holworthy and Dakota, as we build FOUR new Habitat homes all within a few hundred feet of each other!
Three of these homes now have the foundations in place, the first floor on, and we're excited for volunteers from the Harvest Home Coalition with Thrivent, Habitat Interfaith Partnership, and Greece Church Coalition to start joining us on July 16th to build these homes! Thrivent, Caldwell Manufacturing, and an anonymous donor have also stepped up in a big way to help fund and build these homes.
Wall Raising Ceremonies are set for Habitat Interfaith Partnership on Saturday, July 27th, 10am; and the Greece Churches Coalition on Saturday, August 3rd, 10am.
Volunteers that build with us before these dates will see some of the exterior and interior walls go up beforehand - but we will be saving at least one exterior wall for some great group photos!
Join your faith coalition partners (or meet Habitat friends from other coalitions) as we share some fellowship, snacks, and our blessings for the construction of the homes and the partner families!
The fourth house on this intersection just broke ground and will be funded and built by Fastrac, Bank of America, and our Women Build program. More updates on that very soon!
Additionally, the Brighton Churches Coalition is currently remodeling a home on Love Street (just about a mile away); and the Penfield and Perinton Coalitions both finished building new homes in the past couple years and are gearing up for their next ones.
Rochesterians know how to put their faith into action!
Refinishing flooring and installing kitchen cabinets at 39 Love Street (Brighton Coalition)
Kitchen cabinets are built by our highly skilled and dedicated cabinet shop (part of our Hammer & Saw crew), and then our construction supervisors teach volunteers - including those from the Brighton Churches Coalition - how to installed in the house. On this house, the floors are also being refinished!
Drywall installation at 39 Love Street (Brighton Coalition)
As part of the 2019 Leaders Build Week (presented by Brighton Securities), volunteers from Brighton Securities, Davie Kaplan Wealth Care Advisors, Edgcomb Financial Advisors, North Forest Office Space, and Xerox joined us for a day of networking and giving back to the community through construction volunteering.
Today's work was drywall installation at 39 Love Street (remodel sponsored by the Brighton Church Coalition) and painting at 129 Fernwood Street (vacant rehab sponsored by ESL Federal Credit Union).
Thank you to all of the volunteers and sponsors that are helping us turn these two houses back into safe, stable, and affordable homeownership opportunity for two more Habitat homebuyers!
Betts Family & Sutton Family Dedications!
What a beautiful day to celebrate TWO Habitat Home Dedications!
Today we had the honor of celebrating the ceremonial and spiritual transition of two construction sites into two new Habitat Homes that were full of excitement, love, and plans for the future.
There's a few things left to finish up, but in just a few short weeks The Betts Family and The Sutton Family will be closing on their affordable mortgages, moving in, and building the next chapter of their lives in a quality, affordable, and stable home.
These two homes were made possible by the hard work of our partner families, Habitat staff and volunteers, and the faith-filled support of the Penfield Area Coalition of Churches, Thrivent Financial, and the Harvest Home Coalition.
All three of these faith-based organizations (along with many more) are already gearing up to partner with us again - and if you are interested in putting your faith into action with us, we invite you to learn more at: www.rochesterhabitat.org/faith
