Habitat Dedicates 11th Home in Chillicothe

PHOTO by Diane Davis, taken on Oct. 19, 2008

On a recent warm October afternoon, the Chillicothe Area Habitat for Humanity dedicated its 11th home, signaling the nearly complete house at 402 Martin Street in the eastern part of Chillicothe.

Rev. Greg Hughes of the House of Prayer led the crowd assembled through the house blessing. Tony Figg, Habitat past president, welcomed the group and introduced project manager Jim Clemens of Utica. Both Figg and Clemens thanked this year's volunteers and encouraged them and new participants to volunteer on next year's house. At the dedication, Pastor Alan Brock presented a hand-made quilt constructed by members of the Calvary Baptist Church of Chillicothe.

Chartered in December 1997, the Chillicothe chapter of Habitat for Humanity chooses one family per year to participate in the home-building process. On Sept. 15, 2008, area families learned more about the process at an orientation meeting at Grace Episcopal Church.

A selection meeting for this home was held October 6, 2009, at 7:00 p.m. at the home on the corner of Martin and Gale.

Donations to the Chillicothe Area Habitat for Humanity are always welcome and can be sent to the Chillicothe Habitat for Humanity, PO Box 913, Chillicothe, MO 64601.

On September 17, 2007, we welcomed a "nearly full house" representing 25
area families interested in applying for the 2008 Habitat home.
Completed applications were due by 4 p.m., October 17, 2007.

Original Family Notified: November 20, 2007
Groundbreaking: April 28, 2008

Home Dedicated: October 19, 2008

CAPTION: The site at 405 Martin Street sported little more than a foundation last week when Habitat for Humanity Care-A-Vanners arrived on the scene. Now the structure is up and on Thursday, May 8, 2008, volunteers began hanging siding and sheet rock.

There are 17 Care-A-Vanners from nine states participating in this build ranging in age from the late 40s to 88. The Care-A-Vanners help build homes in Chillicothe each spring. This is the 11th home which the Chillicothe Habaitat for Humanity has built since its formation in the mid-1990s.

Habitat Orientation Meeting September 17, 2007
9/2/07 (Story by Diane Davis)

Livingston County residents are invited to learn about the application process for the 11th Chillicothe Habitat home at a meeting on Monday, Sept. 17. The meeting begins at 7 p.m. at the Grace Episcopal Church, 421 Elm St., Chillicothe.

The 2008 Habitat family will be chosen based on three criteria: 1) ability to meet monthly payments, 2) demonstration of need for adequate housing and 3) willingness to partner with Habitat, including working 250 hours for their "sweat equity" down payment.

Applicants have until 4 p.m. October 17 to complete and return their Habitat application and supporting documents to PO Box 913, Chillicothe, or to one of the Family Selection Committee members. The Family Selection Committee will use the next 30 days to check references, review background checks, interview applicants and make a final selection. "We expect to announce the 2008 Chillicothe Habitat family by Thanksgiving weekend," said Brenda Wright, chair of the committee.

The Chillicothe Habitat for Humanity chapter began in 1997 and is completing its 10th home. Nationally, Habitat got its start in Georgia in 1976 and is now working in 70-80 countries.

Donations to the Chillicothe Area Habitat for Humanity are always welcome and can be sent to Chillicothe Habitat for Humanity, PO Box 913, Chillicothe, MO 64601. Messages for the local Habitat chapter can be left at 660-247-3143.
