Habitat for Humanity of Nodaway County dedicates eighth home



Habitat for Humanity of Nodaway County celebrated the completion of its eighth home and its new owners during a dedication ceremony Dec. 7, 2014.

The new home is located at 220 E. Joy St. in Ravenwood.

Habitat for Humanity of Nodaway County named the Billie Kneale family of Ravenwood as its 2014 partner family at the conclusion of an application process in December 2013. Construction on the home began last spring, and a Nov. 24 loan closing allowed Kneale and her family the opportunity to celebrate Thanksgiving in the new home.

Billie is a single mother of three boys – Dylan, 13; Dawson, 10; and Tucker, 4. She is connected to the community through church, employment at Northeast Nodaway School and she manages her own cleaning business.

Habitat for Humanity of Nodaway County is a non-profit, nondenominational Christian housing ministry that seeks to eliminate poverty housing and invites people from all walks of life to work in partnership to build houses with individuals and families in need. It offers partner families an opportunity to help themselves, to own a decent, affordable home of their own, which they pay for and maintain.

Partner families invest hundreds of hours of “sweat equity” into building their homes and the homes of others. The houses are sold at no profit and with no interest charged. Mortgage payments are placed in a revolving fund and used by Habitat for Humanity to finance additional houses.
Individual donors, churches and corporate sponsors provide the funding and materials to build Habitat houses. Volunteers provide the labor.

Habitat for Humanity of Nodaway County serves the communities, which consist of Maryville, Elmo, Clearmont, Burlington Junction, Quitman, Skidmore, Graham, Hopkins, Pickering, Ravenwood, Clyde, Conception Junction, Conception, Arkoe, Barnard, Guilford, and Parnell. Habitat for Humanity of Nodaway County is one of more than 50 affiliates and campus chapters in the state of Missouri.
