Habitat for Humanity was founded by Millard and Linda Fuller in 1976. Through the hard work of volunteers, community groups and churches the organization has built or repaired 1 million homes Worldwide.
In Fort Wane, Indiana we are doing our part to extend the mission of Habitat for Humanity by building new homes for those that need a hand up. The new homes are built for no profit and a zero interest loan is given to the new owner. The money that is paid back is used to fund the next project. The revolving fund continues to build to help additional families get a new home.
All potential owner applies for the opportunity to be a part of the process. The families must volunteer their time to either help with the home they will move into or others in the program. The neighborhood in Fort Wayne, Fullers Landing, is really something special in the Habitat for Humanity organization. Being in the suburbs is something a little unique, in the times past they would build the homes in areas that didn’t have much potential for the real estate to appreciate. Mixed in with other new built market priced homes will give the owners a chance to gain equity for the next step in life. It truly is a joyful process to see how much a house is appreciated. Besides creating a stable environment for the family it is a place to call home.
On September 8, 2015 Matt Lancia Signature Homes will continue the building process for one of these new homes. At 6AM on that day the framing will commence and the building process will continue until it is completed on September 18, 2015. 9 working days, that is correct. A special thank you to all trades involved as well as suppliers. I will be reporting the progress with pictures and tidbits.
Thank you for checking in, Matt Lancia Signature Homes.
