A new Habitat for Humanity of Catoosa County family broke ground at the future site of their home on Saturday. The new family, Janelle and her two children, broke ground on the new construction site at Baggett Estates located in Ringgold. “We are so blessed to be a part of Habitat and we are looking forward to helping in the build,” said Janelle. “This is such a great opportunity for my family.”
Catoosa Habitat board members as well as members from Mt.
Peria Missionary Baptist Church attended the ceremony. Prayers were offered for the partner family and the blessing of the ground was conducted by Senior Pastor Edward Ellis III of Mt. Peria Missionary Baptist. In his remarks Pastor Ellis emphasized that a home should be centered on God and he thanked Catoosa Habitat for their work.
“Having Janelle’s church family out here just shows how much she is loved,” said Penny Mahon, Catoosa Habitat’s executive director. “We are looking forward to having the support of Mt. Peria Missionary Baptist Church as we begin construction on our new Habitat home.” Construction will begin later in the year and people wanting to volunteer are encouraged to contact Catoosa Habitat. “Anyone wanting to volunteer for the build site can contact us by email at Habitat1@catt.com by signing up on our website at catoosahabitat.org.”
