DECATUR, AL. (WHNT) – Sunday afternoon, community members alongside Habitat for Humanity volunteers gathered for a home dedication in Decatur.
While every dedication is special, Sunday meant a lot to the Morgan County community. The home given to a family they needed was the 100th built in Morgan County.
For 33 years, Habitat for Humanity of Morgan County has worked hard and invested in the community to support those who may need it.
Landis Griffin, executive director of Habitat for Humanity of Morgan County, says there is a great need in our community. It is because of this need that Griffin says they will continue to provide housing for residents.
“We are currently planning to build a new neighborhood and build our next 100 homes,” Griffen said.
Sunday’s house went to Whitney Watkins, a single mother of two who says she’s excited to start making memories in her new home with her children.
