Boyle County Habitat for Humanity will hold a dedication ceremony Sunday., Sept. 23, 2012, for its newest house, at 402 N. Sixth St.
The organization’s mission is to provide affordable, decent housing for families in Boyle County who otherwise could not afford or qualify for home ownership.
Since its founding in 1990, Boyle Habitat for Humanity has built homes for some 35 families in Danville, Junction City and Perryville.
The organization’s office and construction personnel are made up entirely of volunteers, most of whom are retirees from Boyle County. They also take advantage of local church organizations and students from Centre College to help with the house construction.
The organization currently is looking for volunteers to fill the following positions:
An office manager to work one day a week for several hours to check phone messages, handle the mail/email, answer the phone, and do light typing and filing.
Individuals to serve on the family support committee, which helps future homeowners through the house budgeting, down payment, building and closing processes.
A part-time treasurer to maintain the financial books, to pay bills during the house construction process, and report to the Habitat board. Computer skills, working knowledge of QuickBooks and some accounting and finance knowledge are helpful.
If you are interested in joining the Boyle County Habitat for Humanity organization, call (859) 236-9153.
