Sussex County Habitat for Humanity Dedicates Home in Selbyville


On Saturday, November 14 at 2:00 p.m., Sussex County Habitat for Humanity will dedicate a donated home on King St. in Selbyville. At that time, it will become the home of Vanessa Johnson and her two children, a ten-year-old daughter and a two-year-old son. The home, donated by Karen Cordrey of Washington, D.C., was delivered to Selbyville from its former site in Rehoboth in January and was renovated by Johnson and her friends, Habitat AmeriCorps members, local Sussex County Habitat for Humanity volunteers, and adult and youth groups. For directions to the Johnsons’ new home, please use GoogleMaps or MapQuest and this address: Lincoln Ave. & King St., Selbyville, DE 19975.

Local contractors working on the Johnson home made significant in-kind contributions to the completion of the home. They include: Arland Edwards, Elvin Schrock & Sons, Jimco Electric, Lowes, NuTech Masonry, Owners Choice, and Shone’s Lumber. Valspar and Whirlpool also donated to the completion of the house.

Habitat for Humanity seeks families who currently reside in substandard living conditions and works along side of them to build a simple, decent, and affordable home with an

interest-free mortgage. Habitat provides the potential homeowner with training designed to make them successful homeowners.

Sussex County Habitat for Humanity is currently seeking business and faith-based groups to volunteer, Wednesday and Saturday, on worksites in the County. To volunteer, call Liz Barron at 302-855-1153.
