Habitat for Humanity of Nodaway County and community members gathered today to celebrate their partnership with Ashley Mikkelsen and her family while dedicating a Habitat home to the family.

With Habitat’s assistance, the family took ownership of an existing home in Maryville. During the dedication service, the Optimist Club of Maryville presented the family with a Bible, and Today’s Civic Women presented the family with a collection of toys, books, movies and games. The Caring Quilters of First United Methodist Church in Maryville provided a quilt to the family.

Mikkelsen and her four children – Olivia, 11; twins Genevieve and Carter, 9; and Cameron, 7 – have moved into a home Habitat for Humanity of Nodaway County and its volunteers completed in 2017. Habitat for Humanity of Nodaway County purchased the home from Joshua and Alea Mullins – the local Habitat affiliate’s ninth partner family – when the family decided to relocate.
Mikkelsen, a single mother, has been employed as an emergency medical technician for 14 years in Clarinda, Iowa. The family has lived in Maryville for nine years, most recently in a three-bedroom apartment.

“I’m very excited and I’m very grateful to the Board,” Ashley said upon receiving the news from Habitat for Humanity of Nodaway County’s Executive Board. “We’ve moved a lot, but we’ve been wanting our forever home, so this will be it.”
