Habitat Holds Raise The Wall Ceremony For Spring Builds

Habitat for Humanity of Findlay/Hancock County recently held a Raise the Wall Ceremony for its spring builds.

The Raise the Wall Ceremony marks the beginning of construction on builds number 46 and 47 at 2032 Harrison Street in Findlay.

These two homes will be completed side-by-side simultaneously.

More than 750 volunteers will build these new homes in just six weeks.

The two homes are the first of four homes scheduled to be built in 2021 as Habitat doubles construction this year to help stabilize more families within the community.

The Carter and Campbell families qualified as a low-income family unable to qualify for a conventional loan who were willing to partner with Habitat and complete at least 400 sweat equity hours.

They will purchase the home with a low interest loan and their monthly mortgage payments will be used to build future Habitat houses.

Habitat for Humanity is accepting applications from families now for new homes.
