Holmes County Habitat for Humanity will hold a groundbreaking ceremony for the Affiliate’s next home on Thursday, April 6, 2017 at 6:00 p.m. The public is invited to attend, with the ceremony being held at the home site at 294 North Mad Anthony Street in Millersburg. The home is being built in partnership with Zacharie & Courtney Sigler and their two children.
“Spring is here and we are ready to start construction on our next Habitat home,” stated Nate Troyer, President of Holmes County Habitat for Humanity. “We look forward to working in partnership with the Sigler family to get their home built so they may become new home owners.”
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.
