Another family has a place to call home thanks to the work of Habitat Bucks. The non-profit hosted a home dedication ceremony on site in Morrisville earlier this month. It is the third of a series of four homes built on adjacent lots.
Executive Director Florence Kawoczka says she found Hector, Silvia, and their children inspiring.
“I couldn’t help but recall the admiration that I know the Habitat staff and I shared as we watched how hard you worked,” Kawoczka said. “We watched you work through our Almost Home financial empowerment program. And you got out on site and built your neighbors’ homes before you got a chance to build your own.”
Homeowner Hector says he saw Habitat Bucks volunteers and staff living through their principles on site.
“The first one on there is to demonstrate the love of Jesus Christ, and I can tell you that I’m a witness to that.” Hector said. “I was meeting new volunteers every time. They all love coming here and participating in this mission that they have.”
Local businesses, organizations, faith groups, and schools put in a collective 800 hours to help build the home on Woodland Avenue.
As for Hector, he is a veteran of the US Army and the US National Guard. He will continue to lead the worship band at his church and work for a small business in Lower Bucks.
