The big unveil for the newest Habitat for Humanity home in Mountain View County is on Friday, December 15th. One side of the finished duplex in Olds will be the new home for a deserving family. The home dedication is at noon and it is located at 4826 52nd Street.
A local family will be in their new home just in time for Christmas as the new Habitat for Humanity Mountain View home is complete.
Family Services Coordinator and Chair of Habitat for Humanity Mountain View Chapter Amy Christiansen says this was a pilot project model they tried in Olds this year.
She says Lyle Stevenson from Stevenson Homes applied for the position of project manager for the build.
The family will be welcomed during the home dedication ceremony, according to Christiansen.
She adds, the other side of the duplex was also completed, so there is now a brand new empty home for another family.
They are searching for the right family for the home, she says some criteria includes: being a family in need, with children, in a housing crunch, able to pay a mortgage and partner with Habitat for Humanity.
