Holmes County Habitat for Humanity will hold a dedication service on their most recently completed home on Monday, January 15, 2018 at 6:00 p.m. The home is built in partnership with the Kenny & Desiree Miller family and is located at 471 Hebron Street in Millersburg. The public is invited to attend.
“Kenny & Desiree embody the spirit of Habitat for Humanity,” stated Nate Troyer, President of Holmes County Habitat for Humanity. “We have enjoyed working with the entire family and look forward to the dedication service as it will be a time for rejoicing with the family, volunteers, donors and our board. I encourage anyone who may be interested in learning more about Habitat to join us at the dedication.”
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.
