Habitat for Humanity celebrates landmark, dedicates local house

STRUTHERS, Ohio (WKBN) — Habitat for Humanity hit the big 40, and couldn’t be happier about it.

On Sunday, the Mahoning Valley branch of the organization dedicated its 40th house.

It was a three-bedroom, one-bath home in Struthers is being purchased by
the Collins and Bell family. Like all Habitat homes, a good deal of the renovation was done by the new owners.

The community pitched in as well.

Organizers said it was that spirit of giving that has helped Habitat thrive.

“It’s really a community experience. We’ve built almost 50 houses in Mahoning County. We’ve committed to this area and we’re going to stay in this area as long as this area needs us,” said Monica Craven of Habitat for Humanity.

Founded in 1989, the local Habitat plans to build four more homes this year.
