NU Habitat Family Chosen 26 Apr 12

NU Habitat Family ChosenThe Minnesota Valley Chapter of Habitat for Humanity has announced the name of their latest partner family to receive a new home. The Gendron-Bronstad family of New Ulm will contribute 200 “sweat-equity” hours toward the construction of the home as part of their agreement.  Work gets underway this June in New Ulm’s Milford Heights neighborhood. Habitat for Humanity families must fall within a certain income range, be unable to obtain a conventional bank loan, be willing to partner with Habitat on the construction of the home, be able to pay back an interest-free mortgage, and be in need of adequate housing. The cost to construct a Habitat home in New Ulm is upwards of $100,000.  Habitat for Humanity relies on volunteer and skilled labor as well as donated and discounted materials.  Donations can be made through the website www.newulmhabitat.org.
