Lafayette, LA – Lafayette Habitat for Humanity invites you to a home dedication in honor of the White family purchasing their new home. This is the twelfth home dedication the Pinhook pocket subdivision, located in the McComb-Veazey neighborhood. Community members, volunteers, and donors are invited to attend the ceremony.
Homeowner Shermica White says before her partnership with Habitat she never thought she would achieve home ownership as a single parent.
“The most rewarding part of this journey is knowing that we will have something to call our own, something that we put so much work into,”says White.
Habitat does not give houses away. Qualified home buyers partner with Habitat to help build their homes by volunteering more than 300 hours of sweat equity. After contributing 300 hours of manual labor towards their home and other Habitat For Humanity homeowners, homeowners purchase their houses with an affordable mortgage financed by Habitat. These mortgage payments are then recycled to build more homes.
The dedication ceremony will be held at 111 Theriot Street from 5:30-7:00pm on Thursday, September 13, 2018. Parking is available one street over at 1325 S. Magnolia.
