In coming weeks, the Aguiar and Ramos families will receive the keys to their new homes – this is the fifth duplex built at Parrotts Ferry Village by Habitat for Humanity of Tuolumne County (HFHTC). When we have a firm date for the dedication, we’ll let you know so you can join us in celebrating two more Tuolumne County families becoming homeowners.
A great big thank you goes out to the 60 volunteers who gave nearly 3,500 hours of their time in the construction of this duplex. Special kudos to Mitch Hrdlicka and Gene Sylvester who logged more than 500 hours each.
This is an extra-special dedication because we will also be honoring the Bauer, Murillo, and Geer families. These families moved in to their new homes in December 2013, but we had to cancel the dedication ceremony because it snowed in Columbia the day their dedication was scheduled.
Although there has been a substantial increase in the number of new homes built in Tuolumne County in recent years, there remains a critical need for housing that is truly affordable for low-income families. If you are a low income family in need of a home, click here to find out more.
Volunteers drive our organization. They perform fund-raising, management, planning, public relations, family selection, family support, site selection, construction and more. Join us today in our mission to create affordable housing in Tuolumne County!
