Habitat for Humanity of Evansville celebrated the completion of its 548th Habitat Home on Monday by dedicating it to a family of four.
Dillon Dimmett and his family received the home, which is the 11th home built in Habitat Evansville's St. Theresa Place subdivision.
Habitat for Humanity of Evansville says that Dillon is a family man who loves spending time with his wife Kaileigh and two daughters Makaiyah and Makenzie.
Currently, Makaiyah enjoys playing volleyball and walking the family dog. Makenzie finds joy in going to school and playing math and word games on the tablet. Both girls also love going shopping with their mom.
Since being accepted into the Habitat homeownership program, Habitat for Humanity says Dillon has been working on sweat equity hours while also balancing work and home life.
“My life has changed. Things have been going in a good direction ever since I started. I’m learning a lot in the homeownership classes like construction, stress management, budgeting, and other things you can use in everyday life which are very helpful," Dillon says. "This Habitat house will be a great place to raise our kids. We will know that we will always have a place to be a family, where we can eat dinner together as a family. We won’t have to ever worry about being homeless again. It will be our home.”
The family was staying in a temporary housing two-bedroom apartment. After hearing about Habitat for Humanity of Evansville's program and applying, Dillon was accepted.
