Sisters Habitat for Humanity dedicates 71st home

Family members and a handful of Sisters Habitat for Humanity volunteers gathered on Cowboy Street in Sisters on Wednesday, February 24, to celebrate the completion of the Sitton family’s home. A video of the socially distanced outdoor ceremony will be released in March.

The family of three expressed their thanks and appreciation for everyone who made their home a reality.

“I want to thank you all for making our dreams possible. Growing up, I’ve always wanted a house of my own.” Robyn Sitton said.

A beautiful quilt created by local quilter Susan Cobb was presented to the family. Cobb makes a quilt for each new Habitat homeowner.

Volunteers and the Sitton family worked alongside each other to complete the home. This is Sisters Habitat’s 71st home in the area. The home is one that Sisters Habitat purchased from a previous Habitat homeowner. A ground-floor bedroom and bath were added to accommodate the family.

Construction began in the fall of 2019 but was on hold during much of 2020 because of the pandemic. Many volunteer hours went into completing this home. Construction Manager Darleene Snider gave special recognition to volunteer “super trooper” Dennis Mills, who put in 456 hours on the project.
