Habitat for Humanity-Coosa Valley will be hosting a wall-raising ceremony Saturday, August 20th at 11 am. The ceremony will take place at 118 Houston London Lane (North Willow Street) and everyone is invited to attend the celebration with Charles and Betty Shockley as the construction of their new home begins.
Habitat for Humanity-Coosa Valley assists low income families in Polk, Chattooga and Floyd counties. The program requires families to qualify based on a needs analysis. The families actually do purchase the homes with a 0% interest loan. Families must demonstrate a willingness to work and are required to put in 250 to 300 “sweat hours” working on their own home or someone else’s home.
Habitat for Humanity-Coosa Valley builds between 3-4 homes a year. The land the Shockley’s home will be built on was donated by Larry and Connie Howard.
