On June 1st, Southern Crescent Habitat for Humanity celebrated the home dedications of five new homeowners and the volunteers that made it possible. The event kicked off with home tours provided by a few of our partner families followed by a beautiful program that culminated in a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
During the program, SCHFH CEO Cynthia Jenkins launched the Friends of Southern Crescent Memorial Fund and honored the memories of John Flowers and Sandra Childress. We also recognized Collective Insights (Volunteer Group of the Year) and Gray Ghost Dave Hesterlee (Volunteer of the Year).
After renting apartments for about 40 years, new homeowner Ms. Haney was ecstatic to cut the ribbon on her new three bedroom craftsman style home. Her story along with those of our other homeowners is the reason why we Habitat!
Special thanks to the former CEO Brenda Rayburn, former board president Elias Makres, Clayton County HUD, Wells Fargo, Georgia Power, and the numerous organizations that lent a hand to help us build these homes.
