Family of Three Moves into Dream Home from Habitat for Humanity
There can’t be a better gift for a family then the gift of moving into their own home.
Last week for Jenny, her two boys, Habitat for Humanity and local officials celebrated the dedication of their 125th home in Bristol Township.
The single mom of two boys at times was overcome with emotion and gratitude as the family reached the ultimate goal of becoming homeowners for generations to come at come at 5802 Beaver Dam Road.
Habitat for Humanity’s staff, their donors, volunteers, and partners are making our dreams come true. We are very grateful and can hardly wait to move and pay it forward,” Jenny said.
At Habitat Bucks, we believe that affordable housing plays a critical role in strong, stable communities. Experts also draw a straight line between housing quality and the well-being of children,” said Stacey Mullholland, vice president of Habitat’s Board of Directors.
Jenny’s home will be the first of Habitat Bucks’ new homeownership model, called a land trust.
Through the land trust, Habitat Bucks retains ownership of the land, while our buyers enter into a long-term partnership with us as they purchase their houses with affordable mortgages; just as before, they own their homes – continuing the tradition of putting down roots, growing, dreaming and thriving.
When our homeowners choose to move on – they agree to resell their home to another qualified homebuyer at an affordable price. Our homeowners get to “pay it forward” to the next generation of Habitat homebuyers, a press release said.
Over 70 volunteers contributed over 1,094 hours building this home, Habitat officials said.
renovating an existing home on State Road in Croydon are currently in the works. In late 2021 a family moved into a renovated home in Bristol Borough on Spruce Street as a result of Habitat for Humanities help also.
