Genesee County Habitat for Humanity begins house # 8
Genesee County Habitat for Humanity is starting its eighth house in about 11 years.
The blessing, with the new family that will be working along with many volunteers to completely renovate the house, was held Saturday afternoon with friends and relatives in attendence.
Angelina, Nikalina and Carmelina have been selected for the house at 150 State Street in Batavia.
The mother of two will have to complete hours of "sweat equity," and when finished, the keys will be turned over to her family.
Habitat will carry a 30-year, interest-free mortgage on the cost of materials.
