[October 14, 2016]   LINCOLN - Habitat for Humanity of Logan County will celebrate its 20th House Blessing on Sunday, October 23, 2016 at 2:30 p.m.

The house that will become a home for Linda Brown and her family is located at 509 N Madison Street in Lincoln, IL. The public is invited to celebrate with the family and following the program take a tour of the home and enjoy refreshments.

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 handout. Habitat homes are financed with affordable no-interest loans. Mortgage payments are made locally to Habitat for Humanity who in turn uses the funds to build or rehabilitate other homes 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 250 hours of “sweat equity” into the completion of their home and homes of others.
