[JONESBORO, GA] (September, 11, 2015)– Southern Crescent Habitat for Humanity has had the honor of serving over 100 families through our Home Repair program. On Saturday, September 12, 2015 at 12pm, all of the families have been invited to come together for a reunion celebration.
While the new home construction and rehab programs of Southern Crescent Habitat focus on helping families become first time home buyers, the home repair program serves the needs of current homeowners with a focus on serving the elderly, handicapped and veterans. Funding for the program over the years has come from Wells Fargo, Clayton & Henry County CDBG, AARP, Publix, Lowe’s Home Improvement as well as Home Depot.
This fiscal year, Southern Crescent Habitat plans to serve 40 more families in Henry, Clayton and Fayette counties. We are looking forward to growing this program and celebrating with those that we have served so far. The event includes a dedication ceremony, lunch, music provided by the Southern Crescent Habitat for Humanity Clayton State Chapter and of course lots of fun!
WHEN: Saturday, September 12, 2015 from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m.
WHERE: 9570 Tara Boulevard, Jonesboro GA 30236
