2013 rehab Maple Rapids and building a new one in St. Johns
After months of diligent effort by scores of volunteers, Habitat for Humanity completed its 8th home in Clinton County. The renovated house on Wacousta Road in Maple Rapids is the new home of Chad Anderson and his two daughters.
After living in a tiny apartment, much too small for two teenagers, the family can put roots down, enjoy a little breathing room and begin building equity in their own home.
Chad, like other Habitat homeowners, fully participated in the renovation of his future home and purchased the house with a low interest loan. Chad spent many hours contributing his required “sweat equity” on the job site and working as a volunteer at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore in St. Johns.
Habitat’s second project in 2013 was a newly constructed home S. Lansing Street in St. Johns. Homeowners, Chad and Christina Coleman, have four children.
Sponsors for the newest Habitat home included: Pilgrim United Methodist Church, First United Methodist Church and St. Joseph Catholic Church (all from St. Johns), the City of St. Johns employees, Turning Point Youth Center, St. Johns Rotary Club and St. Johns Kiwanis Club.
