YouthBuild Students Participate in Groundbreaking for Wexford County Habitat for Humanity Home

 

Students from YouthBuild Northwest in Cadillac took part in a groundbreaking ceremony April 2 for a new Wexford County Habitat for Humanity home in Manton. The students will help build the new home with construction scheduled to begin in mid-May. The students are already working on another Habitat for Humanity home in Cadillac and recently helped finish putting the siding on that home.

Students from YouthBuild Northwest in Petoskey are also working on a Habitat for Humanity project. They're helping  Northwest Michigan Habitat for Humanity build a new home in East Jordan.

Testimonial

Our Township greatly benefits from Network Northwest's experience, depth of knowledge and understanding. Because they work with so many diverse communities in our ten-county region they understand the local land-use issues and are already working on solutions by the time we realize we need some help.
