Kelly has met Habitat’s criteria for homeownership of need, sweat equity, and assumption of a 20-year, zero interest mortgage. Her family and friends, along with volunteers from Emerson and Cargill, have completed the four-bedroom home.
“We (Habitat) would like to thank all the volunteers from Emerson and Cargill, as well as, the many local contractors, suppliers and business who have contributed to the completion of this build. It never happens without strong local support” said William Horstman, Executive Director and COO.
“Emerson is proud to support the creation of a comfortable home for a local family,” said Ann Runner, vice president of Human Resources for Emerson Commercial & Residential Solutions. “Our Sidney engineering and manufacturing facility and Helix Innovation Center at the University of Dayton are focused on ensuring human comfort and health, so this mission is close to our heart. We are grateful to have a large presence of employees in Shelby County who are dedicated to their communities and excited to support this critical effort.”
The public is invited to the dedication ceremonies.
Building strength, stability, self-reliance and shelter
People in Miami and Shelby Counties, and all over the world, partner with Habitat for Humanity to build or improve a place they can call home. Habitat homeowners help build their own homes alongside volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage. With our help, Habitat homeowners achieve the strength, stability and independence they need to build a better life for themselves and their families.
Everyone needs a foundation to build a future. Every home is a building block. Every home improvement gives children a better chance for a stronger future. Every donation helps a family help themselves. Every helping hand makes a difference.
No matter who we are or where we come from, we all deserve to have a decent life. We deserve to feel strength and stability day after day. We deserve to know we have the power to take care of ourselves and build our own futures.
At Habitat for Humanity, this is what unites us. Through shelter, we empower. Our shared vision is a world where everyone has a decent place to live. Because you, me, we — we’re all humans. And every single one of us deserves the opportunity for a better future.
