Ben and Nicole Harris cut the ribbon on their new home.

The 77th Sisters Habitat dedication ceremony was held on Bluebird Street in the ClearPine neighborhood earlier this month, to celebrate the completion of Ben and Nicole Harris' new home.

Many family members and volunteers who worked alongside each other on the project joined in the celebration. Family partners Kristina Maxwell and Chris Laing made a special presentation. A handmade quilt created by local quilter Susan Cobb was presented to the family, as is done for every Habitat homeowner.

The Harrises read an original poem about their Habitat experience.

Construction of the home began in the spring of 2021. Many volunteer hours went into completing this home. Construction Manager Sam Humphreys gave special recognition to the construction volunteers.

Habitat is dedicated to eliminating substandard housing locally and worldwide through constructing, rehabilitating, and preserving homes; by advocating for fair and just housing policies; providing training and access to resources to help families improve their shelter conditions.
