In Jasper, Indiana on Saturday, Habitat for Humanity of Dubois County board members, public officials, and volunteers held a groundbreaking ceremony for a new Habitat home along Birk Drive.
The new Habitat Home will be the 18th home built in Dubois County over Habitat's 25-year history and comes as the first in Jasper in several years.
The home will be built through a new partnership with Patoka Valley School Cooperative and Vincennes University-Jasper allowing area students to get a hands-on experience with Habitat volunteers and school instructors.
As of now, Habitat for Humanity of Dubois County says the home's construction is expected to be completed in January or February of 2021.
Volunteers of all skill levels are encouraged to join in some capacity, whether it be on a construction site, through fundraising efforts, or at the organization’s ReStore located near the Dubois County 4-H fairgrounds.
For more information or to support the construction of the home, you can call Habitat for Humanity of Dubois County Executive Director Michael Richard at 812-704-8441 or email email@example.com.
