LowCountry Habitat for Humanity breaks ground on 25th home
LowCountry Habitat for Humanity recently hosted a site dedication and groundbreaking for its 25th anniversary home on Greene Street in downtown Beaufort.
Fran Calvert and Anne Helm co-chaired the fund drive for the project to commemorate LowCountry Habitat’s 25 years of providing affordable housing in northern Beaufort County.
With the support of the Beaufort community, the build will provide a hand-up to homeownership to Habitat family partner Brandi Hussmann.
Hussmann is a single mother with one child. She also has guardianship of her nephew and two nieces who will join them in their new home on Greene Street.
At the groundbreaking, Habitat board member Pat Dudley, Everette Kuhn from CBC National Bank, Helm and the Hussmann family donned hard hats as they each took a shovel of dirt to commemorate the build.
“It was a wonderful day as we celebrated the beginning of this collaborative project and moved one step closer to helping Brandi achieve her dream of homeownership,” said Janie Lackman, resource development director for LowCountry Habitat.
