Everyone Deserves An Affordable Home

                                             

Clay County Habitat for Humanity dedicated a home Friday, May 3rd. The house is located on Houston Street in Green Cove Springs. Many volunteers worked together to make this home possible. Special thanks to our core volunteers who contributed 1,224 hours on this home. State Farm and BBVA held their corporate volunteer days at this project.

The Quinones family is excited to begin a new chapter of their lives as a home owner. The family consists of a mother, her 17 year old daughter and 8 year old son. The family is looking forward to the stability a home provides and a yard to play in.

During the path to homeownership, future homeowners are required to do sweat equity hours. This gives the future homeowners the ability to work side-by-side with the volunteers who built their homes. Their work becomes an investment into the project. During their sweat equity hours, they create a bond with the volunteers, neighbors and the community. The Quinones family accomplished their sweat equity hours while working two jobs and putting in more than 90 hours a week at work. We commend the family on their dedication and wish them many wonderful years ahead in their home.
