Lowcountry Habitat for Humanity dedicates its 46th local home
LowCountry Habitat for Humanity dedicated its 46th home last week, this one located on St. Helena Island; officially turning the keys over to the James Family.
Jasmine James, a hardworking single mother of two, is realizing the dream of home ownership. Jasmine quickly took to our Homeowner Program and was always there with a smile to help at the construction site, ReStore and events. She finished her 250 “sweat equity” hours in just under a year, all the while maintaining three jobs and taking care of her two children.
The James family is ready to begin building a bright future in their new home. They couldn’t be happier to own a safe, decent affordable home and take pride in the work they accomplished to get to this point. The entire family smiled throughout the dedication but Jasmine’s smile simply beamed when she took hold of the keys to her new home.
LowCountry Habitat congratulates the family on this huge accomplishment and wishes them the best of luck as they turn one dream after another into a reality.
Habitat for Humanity was founded on the conviction that every man, woman and child should have a simple, durable place to live in dignity and safety and that decent shelter in decent communities should be a matter of conscience and action for all. Habitat ReStores were developed to provide Habitat affiliates with another income stream for building houses while providing a place where still useful building materials and supplies can be recycled and gently-used home furnishings can be resold to new owners reducing the burden on local landfills.
