[March 03, 2016]
- Habitat for Humanity – Logan County invites the public to attend
the groundbreaking for its 20th home in Logan County. The newest
home will be built for the Linda Brown family. The build leaders for
the new home will be Tom Frost and “Spud” Newhouse.
The groundbreaking ceremony will be held Sunday, March 13th at 2
p.m. at 509 North Madison in Lincoln
Habitat for Humanity’s goal
is to provide decent and affordable housing to those unable to
secure it through more traditional means. Eligibility is based upon
need, income and a willingness to partner with the organization.
Families and individuals chosen for Habitat for Humanity homes do
not receive a hand-out, but a hand up. Habitat homes are financed
with affordable no-interest loans. Mortgage payments are made
locally to Habitat for Humanity-Logan County who in turn uses these
funds to build or rehabilitate other houses within the county.
Families must have the financial ability to make monthly mortgage
payments. In addition to a monetary down payment, families must
provide 350 hours and individuals must provide 250 hours of “sweat
equity” into the completion of their home and the homes of others.

Habitat for Humanity is not only building homes and lives, but a sense of
community as well.
