Seneca County Habitat for Humanity dedicates new home in Waterloo

Another Habitat for Humanity home is in the books.

The Seneca County Habitat for Humanity board announced that the home its volunteers have been building since October 2016 is complete.

This year’s family and volunteers worked through the winter to complete the project. The home, located at 114 East Elisha St. in Waterloo, was dedicated to the new homeowners on Saturday at noon and they are due to close by the end of the month.

The event was a celebration of countless hours of hard work by numerous volunteers and the family. This year’s family – Ricky, Brittany and their children are so excited to be in their home.

“On behalf of Habitat for Humanity of Seneca County Board of Directors, we are thrilled to be able to turn over the keys to their new home to Ricky and Brittany. This family has been on site every minute of every day we have worked. Their dedication and willingness to learn and go the extra mile has been remarkable. Our families are expected to invest more than 500 hours of sweat equity; Ricky and Brittany have surpassed that requirement. We wish them much happiness for the future in a home they built with Habitat volunteers,” said Karen Simon, President of the Habitat for Humanity of Seneca County Board of Directors.
