Many of the 90-plus people who were involved in the long process of making the home become a reality were present as chapter president Dick Myers presented the key to the homeowners, Ira and Robyn Hogue-Watt and family.
The modular home was assembled and completed by students from the Seneca Highlands Career and Technical Center in Port Allegany. One of the construction foremen, Duane Fry, pointed out that more than 2,900 volunteer hours were logged in making the home a reality.
Habitat officials expressed appreciation to Fay Bennett Hauber and her husband, David Hauber, for donation of the lot and to many others who supported the project.
Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian ministry which seeks to reduce poverty and homelessness. Habitat builds affordable housing in partnership with low-income families. Family members, friends and community volunteers pitch in to build the homes, which are sold to the families at no profit and financed through affordable loans.
Families are chosen based on need, willingness to become partners and ability to repay the loan.
Habitat always welcomes help from skilled and unskilled individuals, groups from churches, and others. Help is needed for specialty skills, such as excavation, carpentry, masonry and plumbing, as well as more general responsibilities.
