November 16, 2016 (MONTROSE, CO) – Habitat for Humanity of the San Juans announced this week the completion and celebration of their 51st house within their service area of Montrose, Ouray and San Miguel counties.
The non-profit organization is inviting the community to the dedication celebration at the home located on 230 Bluegrass Court in Montrose on noon on Tuesday, November 22.
This latest build was made possible thanks to donations to Habitat for Humanity of the San Juans, the DreamBuilders Club (a monthly giving subscription program offered by the organization), ReStore sales and numerous volunteers that took part in the project.
Now the house is complete, homeowner Mike Cascia, who contributed 500 sweat equity hours to building his home, will be taking up residence and paying the mortgage. Cascia, a single dad, is already looking forward to the weekends and summers when his son, Matthew, will visit from Durango, where he is currently studying Business Management at Fort Lewis College.
Since 1991, Habitat for Humanity of the San Juans has offered affordable non-profit mortgage loans and home repair assistance. They are currently looking for applicants for housing projects in Ridgway and Montrose.
