The goal of MCHFH is to eliminate poverty housing in Marion County by building one, decent, afordable home at a time.
Have you ever thought about how much you could change things just by volunteering your time and talents to MCHFH?
Marion County Habitat for Humanity was the recipient of a $2,000 check from the University of Pittsburgh-Greensburg students that were down in Marion County for their Alternative Spring Break. The funding will be applied towards the construction of MCHFH's 34th home built in Marion County. The home is located at 201 Mark Street, Marion and the Kaye Fladger Family will be the new homeowners.
Marion County Habitat for Humanity (re)dedicated our 12th Habitat home on Monday, March 3rd with the help of students from Villanova University and Lehigh University. The home is located at 606 Manning Street, Marion. Bryan and Rosalyn Burch are the proud new homeowners. Congratulations to the Burch family on becoming a part of the Habitat 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.
