The occupants of the new Habitat home will be Sharra Meadows and her three daughters, Mya, 13, Tessa, 11, and Angel, 9.
The new home will be built in the 100 block of East Nellie. The house will include a living room, three bedrooms, a kitchen and one and a half bathrooms.
The new family meets the requirements established by Habitat for Humanity International. Some of these criteria are:
* The family must have the ability to pay the interest-free loan.
* The family must partner with the Monett/Purdy affiliate of Habitat, investing 250 hours of "sweat equity" toward construction of the house.
Habitat for Humanity International is a non-denominational Christian organization that furnishes interest-free loans for affordable houses to qualified applicants. Volunteers donate time and money to build the homes.
A groundbreaking ceremony will be held at 10 a.m. on Saturday, May 5 in the 100 block of East Nellie. The public is welcome to attend. Refreshments will be served.
Meetings of the Monett/Purdy Habitat affiliate are open to the public. The board meets at 5 p.m. on the second Tuesday of each month at the First Christian Church at Fourth andWishart in Monett.
