Celebrating Habitat for Humanity Work

On August 15th, the dedication of the house we worked on in Livermore was held.  This was a rehab for Habitat for Humanity for which a team from Asbury lead the demolition work and then contributed many hours to the rebuild.  The house came out great!

The family moving into the home is the St. Denis family – Matthew, Leah, Noah, Jacob and Joscelyn.  They are looking forward to returning to Livermore and becoming more settled.  They have moved 7 times in 8 years while Matthew was in the Navy and with his current job, always trying to find an affordable place to live.  This rehab was the first of up to five houses in a partnership between Habitat and the City of Livermore to address veterans housing.  As a Habitat homeowner the family contributed 500 hours of sweat equity as their down payment.

This project was the fifth that Asbury has lead completely, or in part, for Habitat.  Previous projects included refresh of three homes in the Freeda Court development several years ago (Asbury as was a part of the original construction of Freeda Court) and last year’s remodel of a condo in Concord.  Next up for our church is providing a monthly team to help with the construction of a new Habitat sponsored development in Martinez.
