Habitat for Humanity of Nodaway County will partner with Joshua and Alea Mullins to build its ninth home in Burlington Junction.
Habitat for Humanity of Nodaway County’s Executive Board recently approved their application. Wednesday night, Board members surprised the family with the news at Calvary Chapel in Maryville after the family attended the church’s evening worship service.
The Mullins currently rent a two-bedroom home, but it is small and inadequate for their family. They have three children, ages 6, 4 and 2.
When construction of their new home is complete, the Mullins will purchase the home with a zero-interest loan.
