Findlay, OH September 27, 2019 — Habitat for Humanity of Findlay/Hancock County will dedicate its Women Build home, which represents the local Habitat chapter’s 43rd build and 6th Women Build, at a public ceremony on Saturday, Oct. 5 at 1627 Payne Ave., Findlay, Ohio at 9 a.m.
A community breakfast and tours of the home will immediately follow the dedication.
All are welcome.
Parking is available at the Shriners Clubhouse on Payne Avenue.
The ceremony will include new homeowners, Shae Golden and family.
Golden and her two daughters have faced many challenges leading up to their dream of homeownership. She is so grateful to all who have helped build and fund their
home. Golden is looking forward to owning a place where her daughters will grow and thrive, have their first day of school picture, get dressed for prom,
have a safe place to call their own, and be able to decorate and make special memories for the holidays.
This build has included 400 women volunteers over 14 days, along with men who have assisted.
Since the Sept. 7 Raise the Wall Ceremony, teams of 40 or more have converged at the site each day to complete the job. Habitat for Humanity is proud to partner with the Green Street Challenge and Grass Groomers and will be receiving sod as a donation for the entire home.
At the dedication, Golden will thank all the donors and the teams of volunteers, builders and Habitat staff who helped build their dream. Build partners include
Marathon Petroleum Corporation; ADP; Century 21; Main Street Deli; National Lime & Stone Company; Cooper Tire & Rubber Company; McNaughton-McKay Electric Company; Whirlpool Corporation; First Federal Bank; Fifth Third Bank; Fruedenberg-Nok; Hitchings Insurance; LaRiche Chevrolet; Lowe’s Distribution Center; Flag City Realty; Ohio Logistics; Home Depot Distribution Center; Hermiller Construction; Findlay E-Free Church; Huntington Bank; Integrity Construction; Van Horn Hoover and Associates, Inc.; Hope House; The Heritage; Millstream Area Credit Union; Saint Marks United Methodist Church; Saint Michael the Archangel Catholic Church; Valfilm; Zonta; and UF Habitat Campus Chapter.
Whirlpool will be providing all new appliances for the home.
Through donations of money, materials and volunteer labor, Habitat is able to build the home and sell it at an affordable price. The Golden family qualified as a
low-income family unable to qualify for a conventional loan who was willing to partner with Habitat and complete at least 400 sweat equity hours. They will
purchase the home with a no-interest loan, and their monthly mortgage payments will be used to build future Habitat houses.
