The final Medical Center Foundation Habitat for Humanity home, one of three, was dedicated Friday.

Habitat for Humanity of Hall County was the recipient of the 2016 Medical Center Foundation annual Golf Tournament award, totaling over $280,000. This sponsorship allowed Habitat to build three homes in the Medical Center Foundation Cul-de-sac in Copper Glen, a dedicated Habitat subdivision off of Baker Road.

Caleb Last and his six-year-old twin daughters were thrilled to finally receive the keys to the dream home they have been building for almost three years. Last works at PFG Milton as a Freezer Selector where he has been for just under four years.

“I want to express gratitude to all who made this home possible, especially the hospital, Bank of America Merrill Lynch, McGarity’s, and the Habitat staff,” he said.

Last has given over 260 hours of volunteer labor, sweat equity, to building his home, other’s homes, and in Habitat’s ReStore, according to a Habitat news release. In addition to the sweat equity, every Habitat homeowner pays a closing cost of $1,500 and an affordable monthly mortgage.

“This is the day we all work so hard for; the day we see a homeowner family achieve the dream of home ownership. We revel in the success of the dedication and love sharing in the joy of the home completion with all of our volunteers, donors, and sponsors,“ added Habitat's Christine Osasu.

This is Habitat for Humanity of Hall County’s 50th new construction. Habitat has served 61 families with 50 new constructions, ten rehabilitations, and one family home in progress, according to the release.
