Ground Broken Today For Potter County Habitat For Humanity's Newest Home

Construction To Start Soon--Can You Help?
Potter County Habitat For Humanity held a groundbreaking today for their newest property, located at 12 Poplar Street, (directly behind St. Bibiana’s Catholic Church) Galeton, PA.

The property was donated to Habitat by Bill and Leona Gill who were present at the groundbreaking.

The new Habitat family, Tammie Lancanese and her three children, were also present. The Lancaneses are currently residing in Galeton and they are looking forward to seeing the new Habitat home being worked on.

The students at I-U9 Seneca Highlands Vo-Tech pre-fabricated the home,that will soon be delivered to the property to be assembled and finished.

Potter County Habitat For Humanity is currently looking for skilled and unskilled individuals, groups from churches, and organizations to volunteer.

If you are interested in volunteering,to help with the foundation and to finish the interior of the home. Please contact the volunteer coordinators Jim and Charlotte Blain at: jrcmblain@aol.com

that's nice an all but why build i'm sure a four bedroom house can be found for sale and they could move in faster then waiting for them to build a house.

Thanks to the Gills for this kind gesture. Is that Mr. Gill with the walker? I love how the younger girl and the older guy are shown here.

This is such a nice thing that they do now for families in need. I wish they had had something like that way back when I became a single parent and had very little income. I had to rent because I couldn't afford to buy with what the banks wanted for a down payment, the monthly amount plus the interest. I really wished then that I could have given my children "their own home." I love seeing this now. It makes me really happy for these young families.

I think this is wonderful... I know Tammie and her family and I am so happy for them having this happen for them. They deserve it very much. It is a great program and it is nice to see families in need get help they need...

I think that is Mr. Gill in the picture with the shovel. But I am not sure.

12:10 poster - the Vo-Tech in Port Allegany pre-fabbed the house and so it is already built, just moved to the location and assembled and finished.

Does ANYONE KNOW if that is Mr. and Mrs. Gill in this picture? We wanted to send them a small gift and a card of thanks but we do not know them. Help?

we need more of this and less government (taxpayer funded) welfare.

It's still taxpeyer money. Who pays for the Port operation?

1) This is NOT a free home. The homeowner can forego the usual downpayment in exchange for 500 hours of labor. Other than that, rather stringent requirements for proof of ability to pay the loan remain, plus additional loan caveats that require the new homeowner to remain as primary residence for a period of time.

2) @4:58 - The Port Vo-Tech class gained valuable real world experience for their labor. They would have been in session building cabinets or bird houses anyways. This isn't remotely close to qualifying for your poorly thought out tax-payer revolution.

3)@2:30pm - After the welfare reform of the 90's there is actually very little (percentage wise, you will always find some) welfare abuse remaining. You really have precious little to complain about regarding Welfare. The current programs are designed to help lift people up, not string them along.

4) #9:41 - Habitat for Humanity has been around for decades, not sure why the one poster never considered this option, but it is definitely not some recent new option.

Nobody knows if that is Mr. and Mrs. Gill in the picture? We wanted to make a framed copy of it and present it with a gift to them but not if it is not them.

Yes it is Bill and Leona in the picture. How nice of them to donate this land. God Bless!
