This is the future home of Jessica and Robert and their five children. APSO (Alabama Power Service Organization) framed house #46 on Sept. 26, 2014 in a Blitz Build. Many volunteers from Habitat for Humanity along with all the families in the pipeline have been finishing the house since then. It is now nearing completion in N. Gadsden. The house is sponsored by funds from a Wells Fargo grant and Habitat Dragon Boat Festival.
House #45 was completed in time for Cendee Pierre to receive the keys to her new home and be home for Christmas.The dedication will take place Feb. 3, 2015 at 10:00 a.m. The house is sponsored by funds from the Habitat Dragon Boat Festival 2013. Thanks to so many wonderful, special volunteers who have made another dream come true!
Gadsden-Etowah Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing organization, that has been building simple, decent and affordable homes in Gadsden, AL, since 1996. Gadsden-Etowah Habitat for Humanity partners with volunteers and low income families to build affordable housing. The houses are sold to these families at no profit and with no interest.
Volunteers provide most of the labor, while individuals and corporate donors provide money and materials to build Habitat houses. Partner families themselves invest hundreds of hours of labor - "sweat equity" - into building their homes and the homes of others. Their mortgage payments go into a revolving fund for Humanity to purchase building materials for the construction of more houses.
