BOONE, Iowa—As one house nears completion, Habitat for Humanity of Boone and Greene Counties is beginning to look forward to their next project, another home planned for Boone in 2015. To build a new home, Habitat must have a partner family and is currently planning to hold a couple of informational meetings in August to answer questions for those that may be eligible. Habitat Executive Director Erich Kretzinger, says the Habitat goal of providing safe, stable homes means healthier families in our communities.
For families interested in learning more about how Habitat for Humanity works along with the application and selection process, two opportunities are being offered as Habitat for Humanity begins making plans for a home to be built in Boone during 2015.
Two free public information meetings will be held on Thursday, August 7, at 7:00 p.m. and again Saturday, August 9, at 10:00 a.m. Both will be presented at the Habitat for Humanity office, 720 Story Street in downtown Boone. While there is no obligation to apply, volunteers will be available to assist interested families with completing applications.
Many lower income families are surprised to learn they can begin to own an efficient and attractive home for less than the cost of rent. While this is made possible through the support of many dedicated volunteers and donors, Habitat partner families work hard for this unique opportunity to capture their dream of stability, health and safety through home ownership.
If you or someone you know needs to escape the sturdy grip of unstable and substandard housing, please plan to attend one of these informative meetings. No reservations required.
