Putnam County Habitat for Humanity pancake breakfast

The Putnam County Habitat For Humanity will host a Pancake Breakfast at Reelsville Fire Department on April 29, 2017 starting 9:00 am through 11:00 am. (Free will donation.) PCHH board members will be there alongside Nancy Rosa, Executive Officer and Frank Mahurin, Construction Manager.

PCHH built its’ first home in 1998. Since that time, eighteen (18) homes have been built. In the last two years, PCHH has begun a “Home Preservation program”. This program is a repair program available to low income families who own their home. The costs of the repairs are based upon donations received, volunteers, skilled labor, and materials. Payments for these repairs are based upon income and are interest free.

The new program PCHH is starting is called “Aging in Place”. This repair program is for senior citizens (55 and older) who own their home. Different from the “Home Preservation program”,” Aging in Place” has no minimum source of income. The income requirement is the home owner cannot make over 60% of HUD’s median income for the area.

Our home building program has been slow due of lack of donations. Although, PCHH is getting ready to select a partner family for a rehabbed home in the Reelsville area. Anyone interested in obtaining a Habitat home, please contact the office at (765) 653-5360 or putnamhabitat@gmail.com for more information.

All programs are based on the following criteria: Need, ability to pay, and willingness to partner. Putnam County Habitat for Humanity is a “Hand Up” not a “Hand Out”
