Habitat For Humanity of Franklin County is excited to celebrate the
completion and dedication of our 51st home, a rehab project, in Franklin County.
Through a partnership with the Chambersburg Area Development Corporation (CADC) and hundreds of
donors, Habitat for Humanity of Franklin County volunteers have completed its 51st home. An open house at the rehabilitated home located at 315 E. Liberty St in Chambersburg will be held on March 13 at 4 p.m. The festivities are free and open to the public but a RSVP is requested at: habitatfranklinpa.org/eliberty.
“This partnership with CADC for our ‘Home Again’ program achieves two things at the same
time” notes Community Engagement Director, Mark Story. “It helps a family in need of a safe,
decent and affordable house and also helps to stabilize downtown through invested
homeownership. We are particularly grateful for the forward thinking work that CADC does in
Habitat homes are true partnerships. It takes the entire community to build a home. The family
that will be receiving the home has invested more than 300 hours of “Sweat Equity” working on
the house and at the Habitat ReStore. The future homeowner has participated in Financial
Literacy Training, Home Maintenance education and more. Habitat for Humanity brings people
together and builds Homes, Communities, and HOPE, but more than a home, we build
Strength, Stability, and self-reliance.
