MARSHFIELD — Marshfield Area Habitat for Humanity (MAHFH) is about to dedicate its 17th home to a local family. A dedication and blessing followed by an open house will be held on Saturday, Nov. 14, at 2:30 p.m. The home is located at 1205 S. Maple Ave. in Marshfield and will be dedicated to Habitat’s partner family, Jake and Jackie Vick along with their son Nikalus. The public is invited to attend.
Construction on the home, which began in July, involved many Marshfield area volunteers and organizations throughout the summer. A complete listing of donors and volunteers will be available at the dedication.
MAHFH is a nonprofit, Christian housing ministry seeking to eliminate poverty housing and to make decent shelter a matter of conscience and action.
Habitat is not a giveaway program. In addition to making a down payment and monthly mortgage payments, homeowner families invest hundreds of hours of their own labor in “sweat-equity” building their house. This labor reduces the cost of their home, increases the pride of ownership, and fosters the development of positive relationships.
Habitat invites people from all walks of life to work together in partnership to build homes with families in need. Marshfield Area Habitat for Humanity is now accepting applications for the 2016 home build. To apply, visit marshfieldhabitat.org or call the office at 715-384-7533.
