The Coastal Empire Habitat for Humanity and Home Builders Association of Greater Savannah hosted a threehouse dedication on Tuesday, July 18th. The homes, located side by side at 5113 Dancy Street, were all part of the nationwide Home Builders Blitz. This undertaking was made possible by 12 local home builders, countless subcontractors and donations of building materials from multiple companies.
“The participating builders, their subcontractors and vendors have truly demonstrated Habitat’s mission statement of bringing people together to build homes, communities and hope.
It has been an honor to work alongside these builders to complete these houses,” says Harold Tessendorf, Coastal Empire Habitat for Humanity Executive Director.
These Home Builders Blitz houses will now have 4 adults and 12 children in their forever homes. The new homeowers include Mary Johnson and Miriam Smalls. The Blitz brings our total numbers to 293 children and 155 adults since being founded in 1983. Countless numbers of volunteers and donations have allowed us to build strength, stability, self-reliance and shelter for.
All CEHFH home recipients are required to put in at least 350 sweat equity hours, complete new homeowners education classes and will be paying no-interest mortgages on their homes.
