Holmes County Habitat for Humanity (HFH) held a groundbreaking for their next home on Thursday evening, March 24. The home is being built in partnership with Robert & Jami Anderson and their two children and will be located on Elm Drive (Wooster Road) in Millersburg.
The Anderson family started the application process a little over two years ago, receiving approval in December 2014. While they have been waiting for their home to be built, HFH built a home in partnership with Candy Rowland and her two children. The Rowland family moved in to their home in November 2015. Two additional families also received approval to become partner families in December 2014 and await their homes.
Robert is employed at the Mohican Youth Academy and has served two tours of duty in Iraq, Jami currently is finishing her degree in childhood education at Kaplan University.
HFH is a nonprofit, Christian housing ministry. HFH works in partnership with people to build decent, affordable housing. The houses then are sold to HFH partner families, at no profit and with no interest charged. Partner families invest hundreds of hours of their own labor - sweat equity - into building their homes and the homes of others. Their mortgage payments go into a revolving Fund for Humanity that is used to build more houses.
