Habitat for Humanity seeks applicants for Reelsville rehab home

Friday, November 24, 2017

Every day, more and more families find themselves in a struggle to keep a decent roof over their heads.

Caught in punishing cycles of unpredictable rent increases, overcrowded conditions or lack of access to land and affordable financing, unsafe areas, poor housing conditions, these families live with a constant burden of uncertainty, stress and fear.

Putnam County Habitat for Humanity knows that safe, decent and affordable shelter plays an absolutely critical role in helping families to create a new cycle, one filled with possibilities and progress.

Affordable homeownership frees families and fosters the skills and confidence they need to invest in themselves and their communities. The outcomes can be long-lasting and life-changing.

With a little help, Habitat homeowners are able to achieve the strength and self-reliance they need to build better lives for themselves and their families. They are empowered to overcome the barriers that so often stand between their families and better, healthier, more financially stable lives.

PCHH has been sending out applications for rehabbing a home in the Reelsville area and will continue to do so until Dec. 1.

The size of the house that will be rehabbed is 1,056 square feet with three bedrooms and two full baths.

The range of annual income is $12,800 to $48,180 (depending on the size of the family) is a requirement along with being willing to partner with Putnam County Habitat for Humanity.

To receive information on getting an application, persons may call Nancy Rosa, executive officer, at 653-5360 or email at putnamhabitat@gmail.com.
