Yates County Habitat for Humanity invites interested community members to attend the dedication of their eighteenth completed home: 129 Lincoln Avenue in the village of Penn Yan. Habitat volunteers completed this 3 bedroom, 2 bath new-build home in about eleven months, including a Coronavirus-related pause in construction in compliance with New York State guidelines. The partner family contributed over 500 hours of “sweat equity” toward their future home.

The dedication will take place Sunday, July 19 at 7 p.m. There is no rain date. The dedication will take place outdoors, as will the traditional house blessing ceremony, and the family will be present to receive gifts from the community, including a Bible, handmade quilt, and books for the children who will soon be living in the home.

Yates County Habitat for Humanity is an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing organization that works in partnership with people in need to build and renovate decent, affordable housing.
