Holmes County Habitat for Humanity to Hold Two Services in September

Holmes County Habitat for Humanity will hold a dedication service on their most recently completed home on Monday, September 18 at 6:00 p.m.  The home is built in partnership with Zacharie & Courtney Sigler and their two children and is located at 294 North Mad Anthony Street in Millersburg.  The public is invited to attend.

"We have enjoyed working with the Sigler family as they have gone through the process of becoming home owners," stated Nate Troyer, President of Holmes County Habitat for Humanity.  "The dedication service will be a time for rejoicing with the family, volunteers, donors and our board."

And the momentum continues for Holmes County Habitat for Humanity as a groundbreaking ceremony for the Affiliate's next home will be held on Wednesday, September 13 at 6:00 p.m.  The public is invited to attend, with the ceremony being held at the home site at 471 Hebron Street in Millersburg.  The home is being built in partnership with Kenny & Desiree Miller along with their seven children.

"We are very excited to start our second build of the year and are happy to partner with Kenny & Desiree," added Troyer.

Habitat for Humanity partner families purchase their homes from Habitat on the closing date, which is shortly before they move in.  The homes are sold to the families at no profit to Habitat and with no interest charged.  Their mortgage payments go into a revolving Fund for Humanity that is used to build more houses.  Holmes County Habitat for Humanity families currently pay over $34,000 annually in property taxes on their homes.  They invest many hours of their own labor - sweat equity - into building their homes and the homes of others.
