Habitat for Humanity to dedicate latest homes this month

A county group that provides low-income housing will dedicate its latest homes later this month.

Habitat for Humanity for San Luis Obispo County has completed construction of the homes on Phillips Lane in San Luis Obispo. They are the 13th and 14th homes Habitat has built in the county since 2001.

The organization builds through a combination of tax deductible donations of money and materials and volunteer labor. The houses are sold at no profit, and financed with affordable, no-interest loans.

Partner families who will purchase these homes are Jonathan and Jamie Avrett and their two sons, and Juan and Maria Rodriguez and their three boys.

Each family has put in more than 500 hours of “sweat equity.”

The dedication will be held June 25 from 10 to 11:30 a.m. at 1320 and 1324 Phillips Lane, San Luis Obispo.

Habitat for Humanity for San Luis Obispo County is an ecumenical Christian ministry that seeks to eliminate generational poverty in the county and make substandard housing unacceptable.

Established in 1997 as an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, the local group partners with low-income families, volunteers and sponsors to build and renovate and affordable homes.
