Winneshiek County Habitat for Humanity seeks partner family for Ridgeway project

Posted: Mon, Mar 13, 2017 12:29 PM

Ridgeway will be the next building site for Winneshiek County Habitat for Humanity.

WCHFH executive director Gus Johnson says the organization is wrapping up its 30th project--converting the Hesper Friends Church into a home for Holly Dahl and her two daughters. With that project coming to an end, WCHFH is now seeking a partner family for the Ridgeway house.

Partner families must have employment, demonstrate that they currently have an inadequate housing situation, and be willing to invest many hours of labor ­or "sweat equity" ­into building their home and the homes of others. WCHFH houses are sold to low-income working partner families at no profit and with no interest charged.
