A milestone for solutions

On Monday, Huntington West Virginia Area Habitat for Humanity hosted a ceremony in Proctorville dedicated a home to a local family.

The house, the group’s second in Lawrence County, is its 100th since their founding in 1990.
In addition to the home, the family received a donation from Facing Hunger Food Bank and an American flag from Jon Nelson, of Woodmen Life Insurance.

The group has partnered with Collins Career Technical Center in building the homes, which are Energy Star Certified.

The Huntington West Virginia Area Habitat for Humanity is a non-profit, ecumenical, Christian ministry, affiliated with Habitat for Humanity International, the nonprofit founded in Americus, Georgia in 1976, which has taken on poverty and housing issues worldwide.

The largest non-profit builder in the world, Habitat has helped build, rehabilitate or preserve more than 800,000 homes since its start.

We congratulate the group and all of the volunteers who helped bring this project to reality and hope to see more of its kind in Lawrence County.
