Franklin County Habitat for Humanity Dedicates New Home

By  | 

Habitat for Humanity in Franklin County announced the dedication of their second house Sunday.

Andre Baker, Ammie Barber and their two children will get a house in Carrabelle. Habitat volunteers worked on the house every Saturday for two years until it was completed.

Habitat for Humanity is a non-profit Christian organization that works with low-income families that need affordable housing. Once the houses are finished, the organization sells them interest-free in exchange for 400 hours of labor.

Ella Bond, Co-Chair of Habitat for Humanity, said, "We break the cycle of poverty in a community when we start giving affordable houses to people and giving them a place to live."

Ammie Barber, Habitat homeowner, said, "We're really excited. It's a blessing. We're real excited about it and we appreciate everyone's help and all of Habitat and everyone that's volunteered."

The Franklin County chapter of Habitat for Humanity has been around for three years. As for what's next, now they're looking for land to build their next house.
