Dedication Ceremony 

We had a beautiful celebration at the dedication for our 68th home in Batavia on November 20th for the Owino Family. The home is the first we have built in Batavia. The community, from local businesses to city officials, came out and warmly welcomed the family. Please take a little time to enjoy the video capturing their special day.

Thank you to First Centennial Mortgage, our Builders Club, Accurate Door, O-cedar, C&N Construction, Painters USA, Inc, Orange Home Services, Winding Creek Nursery, Certain Teed Siding, Mom & Son Construction, and so many more who made donations to help us build this home.

Afghan Raffle

The proceeds from the raffle went towards the veteran build event. Stephanie Kifowit had the honor of drawing the winner for the raffle. To our surprise, the winning ticket was designated for the next FVHH veteran family to receive the afghan. Thank you to our gracious donor!

FVHH homeowner, Lawella, an Air Force veteran, crocheted the beautiful afghan. Read more about Lawella's family and how they found their way to owning a Habitat home here.
