Habitat for Humanity of Waukesha County (HFHWC ) will host a ground-breaking ceremony at 10 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 28 to kick off construction of its new home build and introduce the new Partner Family who will help construct and reside in the home at 302 West Ave.
The new home is in the Dunbar Oaks subdivision. Construction will take approximately six months and will be completed by volunteers, contractors, and through the requisite "sweat equity" hours contributed by the new Partner Family.
The families are selected based upon their need for safe and decent housing and their ability and willingness to partner with Habitat for Humanity. All families are required to contribute 250 "sweat equity" hours per adult in the completion of their homes. Families must have lived within Waukesha County for a minimum of one year, be a first-time homebuyer, have a steady income and have good credit history. Families enter into a modified mortgage agreement with HFHWC.
"Once again, we are blessed to begin building a home in the Dunbar Oaks subdivision in Waukesha. We thank the City of Waukesha for their continued support, as well as our donors and volunteers who give so selflessly of their dollars and energy to support our mission here in Waukesha County," said Betsy Ellis, board president.
Those interested in volunteering labor or tax-deductible donations of money, land, and new construction materials can visit www.hfhwaukesha.org or call (262) 309-6025. Habitat for Humanity Waukesha County has recently re-located its office to 217 Wisconsin Ave, Suite 412, Waukesha, WI 53186. All correspondence and donations should be sent to P.O. Box 91, Waukesha, WI 53187-0091.
