Habitat for Humanity of Dubois County (HFHDC) board members, public officials, and volunteers joined the newest Habitat homeowner’s family and friends to ceremonially dedicate a new home along Birk Drive in Jasper on Sunday.

Even with the COVID-19 pandemic, Habitat for Humanity of Dubois County was able to build a new home and help a local family.

Habitat coordinators were able to complete the home on schedule through the hard work of a small group of core volunteers, including local high school students through a new joint build partnership with Patoka Valley Cooperative and Vincennes University. The group worked more than 300 hours a week to complete this home. 

“This latest home build has been unique with the challenges presented by the pandemic, but it is a testament of the resiliency and commitment of our volunteers and community to come together to achieve something special,” said executive director Michael Richard. “This home represents hard work, the power of community that Dubois County has, and the dream of homeownership for a very deserving family.”

HFHDC will soon be accepting applications for their next home build, tentatively scheduled to begin in late August 2021.

Our Tuesday was nothing short of chilly, gloomy, gray and wintry throughout the Tri-State; afternoon high temperatures only reached as high as the middle to low 30s throughout the region. Our peak temperature of 32° in Evansville was 16° below the norm for this time of the year. As for the evening ahead, cloud cover and cool air will linger - additionally, there have been reports of sporadic flurries on and off throughout the day and some portions in the Lower Ohio Valley may continue to see brief snow showers through 10 o’clock this evening. Our winds will shift southward overnight tonight into early Wednesday morning and while it won’t necessarily drive temperatures higher for the predawn hours, It will help keep temperatures from falling much further than where they currently stand. Extract the morning low temperature near 29° in Evansville as we kick off our midweek.
