MCHFH House #33
MCHFH dedicated our 33rd Habitat home on Saturday, June 22, 2013. The home is located at 209 W. Mullins Street (Hwy 76), Nichols, SC and is our first built within the city. Cody and Whitney Altman, along with their twin daugthers, Allison and Calli, are the proud new homeowners. Congratulations to the Altman family!
Marion County Habitat for Humanity is a locally run affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing organization. Habitat for Humanity works in partnership with people in need to build decent, affordable family housing. The houses are then sold to our partnering families at no profit and with no interest cost.
Volunteers provide most of the labor, while individual, church, civic and corporate donors provide money and materials to build Habitat houses. Partnering families must invest 300 hundred hours of labor ("sweat equity") into building their homes and the homes of other potential Habitat homeowners. Habitat homeowner mortgage payments go into a revolving fund. Those funds are then used to build more houses.
