Families to break ground on new homes
Last updated 1/17/2023 at Noon
Three families will break ground on their future Sisters Habitat for Humanity homes in the Village Meadows neighborhood on Monday, January 23, at 3:30 p.m. Habitat invites the community to join in the groundbreaking celebration.
Elia and Holly Mapusaga; Molly McShane and her children; and Julie Glanz and her children have completed many hours of sweat equity to achieve this milestone. They are all excited to get started building a home of their own. Construction will begin in February with completion anticipated late-summer 2023.
Heart of Oregon Corps YouthBuild will be constructing one of the homes. YouthBuild members transform their lives and roles in society through earning their GED, high school diploma, or college credits, learning job skills, and serving their community through building affordable housing.
Sisters Habitat volunteers will build the other two homes. Each home takes 3,500 to 4,000 volunteer hours to complete. Construction volunteers are needed. No experience is necessary. Contact the Sisters Habitat office for information at 541-549-1193 or [email protected]
“We are grateful to donors and volunteers who have generously given to make these three future homes possible. Sisters Habitat truly builds homes, community, and hope!” said Executive Director Sharlene Weed.
