First Habitat for Humanity home placed in Mesick
The Wexford Habitat for Humanity dedicated their first home ever placed in the Village of Mesick on Thursday.
To receive a home from Habitat for Humanity, each family is required to complete an application process and their income must be around 60 percent of the median income for the county.
The three bedroom home was finished a few weeks ago and took about a year to complete.
Several volunteers from around the community put in a helping hand to finish the project.
Each cabinet purchased was hand made by the inmates at the Pugsley Correctional Facility.
Wexford Habitat for Humanity told us they are trying to expand beyond the Cadillac area.
"Thereâ??s a person like that in every community so we want to be able to help people, we a limited amount of houses that we can build, but we want to make sure we reach everybody in Wexford County because we are Wexford County habitat," said Wexford Habitat for Humanity Executive Director Mike Niebauer.
The house is going to a single father from Mesick and his two children.
Each family that receives a home from Habitat for Humanity is responsible for 300 hours of work that goes into their house.
