2015 House Build To Start Soon!!

06.17
2015

Naomi Smith and her children, Kierra and Caleb, have been selected as our newest Habitat Partner Family, with a home to be built on Habitat property not far from the Habitat ReStore off Route 31 north of Honor. The road into this new development is named in memory of Helen Scott, long time committed member of our affiliate.

On Sunday, August 9, at 4:00 p.m. the public is invited to a brief Ground Blessing Ceremony Service to be held at the build site. There will be an opportunity to meet Naomi and her family, along with members of the Benzie Habitat Board and the Family Services Committee. Naomi currently lives in Honor, and works at PaPa J’s Restaurant, where she is a familiar and welcome waitress. Naomi and her family will be helping with the build, thereby fulfilling the Habitat required “Sweat Equity” hours.

The coordinator for the build is John Schaub, a licensed contractor who has worked on several Habitat homes over the past years. Habitat depends upon volunteers from the community to help with the construction. It is planned that the construction hours will be Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, between the hours of 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Persons or organizations willing to help are invited to call our Habitat Office, (231) 399-0300, or visit the website at benziehabitat.org, where you can print and mail the Volunteer Form to the Habitat Office.
