(Dayton, OH) - Habitat for Humanity of Greater Dayton will dedicate a new home at 11 a.m. this Saturday, July 26. Located at 6706 Sandy Drive, Trotwood, OH 45426. This new home is built in conjuction with CESO, Dillard Electric, Outstanding Heating, Air, C. Brewer Plumbing, and many volunteers for Jason and Kynni Orwig and their five children.
After five years in a crowed three bedroom house with four boys and one girl they realized they could not continue in such a small home. Kynni's sister told her about the Habitat program and she applied hoping that her family would be chosen for the affordable housing program. The Orwig's have always prayed for the opportunity to be homeowners and be able to afford a larger space for the kids to play. Their prayers have been answered and they are preparing to move into the home they always dreamed of.
Jason and Kynni agree that having a larger home would give the family enough room to work, play and study as Jason has ambitions of going back to school. Kynni said, "The budgeting classes played an important role in their quest to reach their present goal." She liked working with Habitat earning sweat equity in the office, and taking the children to Lowes for the Build and Grow workshops. Jason earned sweat equity by maintaining various roles in the construction field in the areas of hanging drywall, building the cubical shelves for the new restore, and site cleanup.
Jason and Kynni are very anxious to become home-owners. They will be relieved when the family is able to watch their children run and play in their own back yard as they build on memories for a lifetime in their own home.
The public is invited to tour the home from 10 a.m. until 11 a.m. and stay for the dedication ceremony to learn more about the impact of Habitat's homeowner programs on a family and the community they will work, play, and live in.
About Habitat for Humanity of Greater Dayton
Founded in 1983, Dayton Ohio Habitat for Humanity is a non-profit, volunteer-driven Christian ecumenical housing ministry dedicated to providing decent, affordable housing to families in need throughout Montgomery County.
Greene County Habitat for Humanity was founded in 1985 dedicated to eliminating substandard housing locally and worldwide through constructing, rehabilitating and preserving homes; by advocating for fair and just housing policies for families throughout Greene County Ohio.
January 1, 2014, both of these affiliates merged their resources to create one organization to serve both Montgomery and Greene counties and became Habitat for Humanity of Greater Dayton.
Habitat for Humanity serves as a hand up, not a hand out, for qualified low income families. Families apply to earn a home of their own. Once accepted into the program, our "Partner Families" work alongside our many volunteers to build their house. They put in 275 to 550 hours of "sweat equity" and take approximately 40 hours of classes to prepare for responsible homeownership before earning their home. Partner families make a down payment toward the purchase of their home, which is then sold to them through an affordable, interest-free mortgage held by Dayton Habitat for Humanity. Mortgage payments are put into a revolving fund to build future homes.
