Habitat for Humanity – Coosa Valley dedicated its 58th home at 1400 Gordon Avenue in Rome on Sunday.
Betsy Allgood, Executive Director, enthuses that Macy Bowers and family were able to move into their new home just in time for Christmas.
Over 130 volunteers contributed more than 1,400 hours of work to help Macy realize her dream of becoming a homeowner, indicates Allgood. Attendees of Sunday’s dedication made sure that the Bowers’ Christmas tree was bedecked with ornaments.
The dedication for Habitat’s 59th home, also in Rome, will likely take place in January, says Allgood. And then ground will be broken on the 60th home over in Aragon. Volunteers are sought to assist with those builds.
Applications for homeownership are available at www.habitatcoosavalley.org and the Habitat ReStore in Central Plaza. They will be accepted from January 3rd until February 24th, asserts Allgood. Habitat for Humanity – Coosa Valley serves Floyd, Polk, and Chattooga Counties.
