FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA21) – After six seasons of building homes for Fort Wayne families, Habitat for Humanity dedicated its final phase one home in Fuller’s Landing on Sunday.
However, that doesn’t mean they’re stopping building homes anytime soon. There’s more land put aside for homes in phases two and three.
Work began on the Ith family’s home back in May with the women build event. Over 400 women volunteers came to help with construction.
The Ith family has also had to work hard for their new home, having put in over 400 hours of “sweat equity”.
Habitat organizers say that it takes hundreds of community volunteers and organizations to come together to build up and support the families they help with each new home.
They say 1,500 families have reached out to them for more information on affordable housing.
That’s why on Monday, Fort Wayne Habitat for Humanity will be opening their homeownership application process for the first time in two years.
