Warren County Habitat for Humanity Receives Grant from the Investors Foundation to Support the Community Home Building Program
Warren County Habitat for Humanity (Warren Habitat) recently received a $15,000 grant from the Investors Foundation to go towards their home-building program for Warren County Veterans and other deserving low-moderate income families. The grant will help further Warren Habitat’s mission of building homes and hope in Warren County and providing homeowners with strength, stability, and self-reliance through shelter.
“It’s an amazing thing to see the community come together and support a cause that makes such a difference,” Executive Director Ben Eskow commented. “Rick Houston, one of our Veteran homeowners, got to watch his modular home being installed in late March. The entire time, he was repeating, in awe: ‘This is better than Christmas!’ That’s the kind of difference a grant from organizations like the Investors Foundation make for our Veterans and our community.”
Warren Habitat is currently working with volunteer groups on completing a traditional build in Franklin Township, and is preparing to finish necessary adjustments on Veteran Homeowner Rick Houston’s modular home, so he can officially move in very soon. The traditional build is scheduled to be completed this year, and Houston’s modular home will be completed and ready for him to move in by summer. The entire team at Warren Habitat is very blessed to be working with such wonderful, grateful people and helping to change lives in unimaginable ways.
