150th Home Groundbreaking

On Thursday, October 26, Habitat for Humanity of Chester County officially broke ground on their 150th affordable home.

Habitat supporters, sponsors, and community members gathered at the site of the future home on 400 Community Lane, Coatesville in the Cambria Terrace community to reflect on the last 149 homes and celebrate the future of the organization.  Commissioner Kathi Cozzone called the community, “an incredible return on investment” on the Community Development Block Grant that the county awarded to Habitat in 2011 in order to cover the cost of infrastructure work in the neighborhood. She then presented Habitat Executive Director, Chip Huston, with a citation recognizing the milestone achievement.

Also present at the groundbreaking and pictured above (from left to right) is Mike Boyd from State Senator Andy Dinniman’s office; Commissioner Cozzone; Habitat Board of Directors President, Charles Whitford; Amber Little, from State Representative Harry Lewis’s office and Habitat homeowner; as well as Pat Bokovitz, Director of the Chester County Department of Community Development.

At the conclusion of the groundbreaking ceremony, Wells Fargo presented Habitat with a $160,000 check to fund two additional houses in 2018.

Driving to Build Golf Outing

Despite the sudden heat wave, it was a beautiful day for golf at the fourteenth annual Driving to Build golf outing on June 12 at French Creek Golf Club. Fun was had by all as foursomes competed in chipping, longest drive, straightest drive, and closest to the pin contests on a beautiful course. All money raised will support Habitat’s mission to build decent, affordable housing in Chester County. The success of the event would not have been possible without the support of the golfers and generous sponsors.
