Habitat for Humanity to dedicate new home

By Herald Staff

Habitat for Humanity of Dubois County will dedicate its 18th home in Dubois County on Sunday, Jan. 31. Join Habitat for Humanity online for the dedication ceremony at 3 p.m., streamed live on the Habitat for Humanity of Dubois County Facebook page at facebook.com/DuboisHabitat.

This year’s home was built through a partnership with Patoka Valley School Cooperative and Vincennes University Jasper to support the efforts of high students looking to enter the local workforce by having a joint-build process with Habitat volunteers, school instructors and students. Student participants learned and practiced skills from the classroom in a real-world situation and were able to be part of something they help build that will last.

Celebrating its 25th year anniversary in 2020, HFHDC has a mission of providing a “hand up” to people in the community to acquire and own decent and affordable housing, both through new home builds and home repairs.
