Habitat home dedications are an extremely exciting and magical time. When a Habitat home is completed, community members, friends, and family gather around the Future Homeowner and bless the home. This is when a Future Homeowner becomes a Homeowner. The ceremony is completed with a ribbon cutting and celebrations all around.
Habitat for Humanity of Evansville doesn’t just build houses; we are involved in the community 100%. Habitat hosts many fundraisers ranging from large galas to small get-togethers. Keep an eye out for the fun celebrations!
