Habitat for Humanity of Nodaway County dedicated its ninth house built in Nodaway County on February 26.
Joshua and Alea Mullins and their four children, Elijah, Micah, Isaiah and Calia, are the proud owners of the home at 1315 East Jenkins Street, Maryville. The family took possession of the home after its closing in January.
The Mullins were named the partner family in 2015. Construction of the home began fall 2016. The home was dedicated and blessed during the ceremony. A Bible was presented by the habitat board. The First Presbyterian Church Caring Quilters presented each child with a quilt. Don Crane made the official presentation of the keys to the new owners.
Habitat for Humanity of Nodaway County is a non-profit, non-denominational Christian housing ministry that seeks to eliminate poverty housing. The ministry invites people from all walks of life to work in partnership to build houses with individuals and families in need.
It offers partner families an opportunity to help themselves to own a decent, affordable home of their own which they pay for and maintain.
