Ridgeway Habitat House Dedication

On Friday, May 23rd at 5:00 pm the 27th Habitat for Humanity House built in Winneshiek County was dedicated in Ridgeway.  There was a brief dedication ceremony officiated by Pastor Mark Kvale, who is a member of the Winneshiek Habitat Board.  The house is located at 425 Pike Street.  Family and friends came to the dedication and to view the house. 

Paul and Meagan Sobolik, the partner family, were living in Cresco in an upstairs apartment. Paul works at a local turkey farm and Meagan is a clerk at the new Spectrum Thrift store in Decorah. Their daughter, Maycee Mae, is four years old and in preschool.

“I’m anxious to get in and settled before the arrival of our second child in early July. We’re so grateful to have a home and yard as our family grows,” said Meagan. As the partner family, the Soboliks were required to provide 150 hours of volunteer help to assist in building the home. More photos of the Dedication Day...

Construction of the new Ridgeway home began in November. The inside work was done over the winter while the outside work was just completed.  Landscaping will be finished as weather permits.

For the Don Kemp Memorial Golf Tournament and Winneshiek County Habitat for Humanity Fundraiser...



Winneshiek County Habitat for Humanity (WCHFH) is a locally run affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing organization. The goal for Habitat for Humanity is to work in partnership with people in need to build and renovate decent, affordable housing. The houses are sold to those in need at no profit and with no interest charged.
Volunteers provide much of the labor and partner families themselves invest hundreds of hours of labor "sweat equity" into building their homes and the homes of others. Their mortgage payments go into a revolving Fund for Humanity that is used to build more houses, both in the US and Guatemala, the international partner nation for the Winneshiek Habitat affiliate.
