Habitat to debut latest home


CHAMBERSBURG—Habitat for Humanity of Franklin County will celebrate the completion and dedication of its 51st home, a rehab project, in Chambersburg.

Through a partnership with the Chambersburg Area Development Corporation and hundreds of donors, Habitat for Humanity of Franklin County volunteers have completed the project and will host an open house on March 13 at 4 p.m. 315 E. Liberty St in Chambersburg.

“This partnership with CADC for our ‘Home Again’ program achieves two things at the same time,” said Community Engagement Director Mark Story. “It helps a family in need of a safe, decent, and affordable house and also helps to stabilize downtown through invested homeownership. We are particularly grateful for the forward thinking work that CADC does in our area.”

It takes a community to build a home. The family that will be receiving the home has invested more than 300 hours of sweat equity working on the house or at the Habitat ReStore.

Future homeowners must participate in financial literacy training, home maintenance education and more.

HFHFC was formed in 1993 and to date has served more than 125 low to moderate income individuals and families across the county.

The festivities are free and open to the public, but a RSVP is requested at: habitatfranklinpa.org/eliberty.
