Habitat for Humanity Porter County Celebrates Homeownership in Portage

Habitat-for-HumanityHabitat for Humanity Porter County, along with community leaders, supporters, homeowner families and friends will celebrate the completion of construction on a brand new 3 bedroom home at a dedication ceremony in Portage on Saturday, November 19, 2016 at 10:00 a.m.

The project will celebrate the hard work and determination of the Delk-Bartman Family as they realize the dream of homeownership.

Through financial donations, materials and volunteer labor, Habitat for Humanity Porter County built this home and the Partner Family will purchase the home at an affordable price. Like all Habitat homeowners, the family has contributed a minimum of 500 hours or more than the minimum of "sweat equity" working on the construction of their home, and has participated in educational programs designed to strengthen the entire family and help to ensure their success as new homeowners. The new homeowners will make monthly payments on a low-cost, no-interest mortgage, which in turn will go toward building more Habitat Porter County homes.
