YORK, Pa. (WHTM) – York Habitat for Humanity broke ground Thursday for their latest home building project on Kelly Drive.
Habitat officials were joined by Felisa Green who will own the new home after it’s built and turned over to her next spring.
The home will be built to special specs. Felisa’s son Jamar is disabled and requires wheelchair accessibility. Habitat for Humanity made a number of changes to the plans to meet Jamar’s needs.
The brand-new home will replace a blighted building that was demolished to make way for the build.
Over the past 30 years, York Habitat for Humanity has built 119 homes and put roofs over the heads of more than 500 city residents.
More than 2,200 volunteers contribute their time to the projects annually.
