Habitat For Humanity Celebrated 250th Locally Completed Home

Monday, March 16, 2015
Habitat for Humanity of Greater Chattanooga Area celebrated its 250th locally completed home during a special dedication ceremony on Saturday, March 15 in North Chattanooga for a new partner homebuyer and working mother of two, grandmother of four, and great-grandmother of twin girls, Brenda Goodloe.  More than 75 people attended the ceremony including officials from the City of Chattanooga, Habitat for Humanity of Tennessee, volunteers and representatives from supporting partners. 
 
Habitat’s 250th home was funded by the City of Chattanooga, Department of Economic and Community Development and the Tennessee Housing Development Agency's Housing Trust Fund/Habitat for Humanity of Tennessee.
 
“This is a special home as it marks a major milestone for our mission here in Greater Chattanooga,” said David Butler, Executive Director of Habitat for Humanity of Greater Chattanooga Area.
“We are extremely grateful for the commitment and support received by the City of Chattanooga and the Tennessee Housing Development Agency’s Housing Trust Fund. Without our funding partners, we are not able to serve partner families like Ms. Goodloe. Every home we dedicate is special to us and to be here today celebrating the ability to transform 250 families and counting in Chattanooga is an absolute blessing.”
 
Ms. Goodloe’s new home was purchased with a zero-interest mortgage through Habitat for Humanity of Greater Chattanooga Area. Her home is one of two Habitat houses recently constructed in North Chattanooga.
