OUR 16th HOME

Supporters of the Chillicothe Area Chapter of Habitat for Humanity, as well as family members and friends of the Sam and Katie Ramsbottom family, gathered near the corner of McNally and Normal streets in Chillicothe for the dedication of Habitat's 16th home Sunday afternoon. This home will be for Sam and Katie Ramsbottom and their children: Dana, Allison and Clinton. Tony Figg, a board member of the local Habitat chapter, welcomed those in attendance and explained how Habitat for Humanity creates home ownership opportunities for families who otherwise might not be able to afford simple, decent housing. Sometime early this week, the Ramsbottom family and Habitat representatives will go to a lawyer's office and have a formal closing on the house. The family's mortgage payments, along with donated funds from other sources, will be used to help build the next Habitat houses.

Construction of each home is also made possible by professionals who donate their time or provide their services at reduced costs. Sunday's ceremony also included a message from Chris Leach, pastor of Free Methodist Church. A quilt, quilted by Mickey Cox, was presented to the Ramsbottom family by Jon Davis, pastor of Calvary Baptist Church. Quilts have been presented by the church to each of the 16 Habitat families during their home dedications. As part of Sunday's ceremony, Eva Danner Horton, a former Habitat board member, made a presentation of a tree planted on the Ramsbottom property in memory of Bernita Mammen, a charter member of the Chillicothe Area Chapter of Habitat for Humanity Board of Directors. Mammen was instrumental in getting the organization established.

The Chillicothe Area Habitat for Humanity chapter chose the Sam Ramsbottom family as the next Habitat family. The Ramsbottom home is the 16th home built by the local chapter and will be constructed at the corner of McNally and Normal streets in 2016, east of the Habitat for Humanity home currently under construction.

Potential Habitat homeowners must attend an orientation meeting, complete the application process and contribute sweat equity hours by helping build the home or helping with another Habitat project. The homeowners then pay for their home through a 20-year, interest free loan. Habitat families are chosen based on overall need and ability to pay, whether the applicant is a small family or a large family. The orientation meeting was held in early August. The local chapter welcomes volunteers.

According to Habitat for Humanity board member, Tony Figg, the 2016 Habitat house should be completed by early fall. It is being built on Normal Street right next door to the 2015 Habitat House. The 2016 Habitat house's foundation was poured in the fall and framing started in the spring. According to Figg, the trim, flooring and landscaping still have yet to be completed. The 2016 Habitat house is going to Samm and Katie Ramsbottom.

June 24, 2016 - Local Habitat workers are seeking volunteers to help with the final touches on this home. "Whatever level of skill you possess, we can find a job for you," said Chasity Anderson, a Habitat for Humanity board member. Volunteers are needed each weekend from now through the end of August. The Sam and Katie Ramsbottom family will be receiving this specific Habitat home, being built at the corner of McNally and Normal, upon its scheduled completion in late summer 2016. To learn how to volunteer with Habitat, contact Connie Epperson at 660-752-6789.
