Habitat for Humanity dedicates 50th home
Nonprofit plans to begin constructing entire subdivision
Habitat for Humanity of Hall County dedicates it's 50th home Friday morning on Desota Street in Gainesville.
“Thank you,” said Maxine Harvey, tears welling in her eyes as she stood on the front porch of her new home on Desota Street in Gainesville on Friday afternoon. Harvey is the owner of Habitat for Humanity of Hall County’s latest home, the nonprofit organization’s 50th built in the county over the past 25 years. “It is not that uncommon an experience when we have the joy of a dedication that we have a homeowner that is so overwhelmed that the words are ‘thank you,’ because that is the deepest sentiment that can be shared with everybody that has given so readily of themselves,” said Habitat Executive Director Ann Nixon.
