Category: Savannah Area Business News

May 14, 2013 – Savannah’s Habitat for Humanity, along with its homeowner families, partners and volunteers, invites the public to join them as they dedicate two Habitat Savannah homes on Thursday, May 30, 2013 starting at 3:30 p.m.  A brief dedication ceremony and house blessing at each location will conclude with the new homeowners receiving keys to their property and an open house.

The schedule of home dedications follows:

1. May 30, 2013, 3:30 p.m. - Dedication of 107 Alfred St. for the Lawton Family

Every mother wants a safe place for their children, and Kerina Lawton, a new Habitat homeowner, is no different. Lawton beams, literally, every times she speaks of making a new home for her three children, aged 14, 11 and 10.

2. May 30, 2013, 4 p.m. - Dedication of 208 W. 55th St. for the Lawton Family
Boys need a place to run and roughhouse, Latasha Lawton will tell you.  Lawton is overjoyed that her two boys, aged 12 and 5, have found that place in their new Habitat home.

Habitat Savannah is the premier area institution responsible for rehabilitating and constructing affordable housing.  A proven long-term solution to poverty, Habitat’s model emphasizes collaboration and community engagement.   The organization’s partnership model offers deserving, hard-working families a hand-up. 

An array of partners, ranging from businesses, local government, and the families themselves, donate the capital and the labor used which lowers the cost of Habitat’s houses to an affordable level.   Financial support for the W. 55th Street was provided by Wells Fargo as well as a whole host of partners including Valspar, Owens Corning, and Home Depot.

Parties interested in finding out how to support Habitat’s work can contact Michelle Hunter, Resource Development Manager, at (912) 353-8122.
