After 23 Tuesdays and 24 Thursdays, Kendra Bilodeau and her two children finally have a home to call their own. Door County Habitat for Humanity dedicated its 40th home Thursday evening in front of friends, family, and volunteers. Project supervisor Chuck Stone says the dedication is a bittersweet day as the volunteers and the partner family grow close throughout the months on the job site.
After 343 sweat equity hours between her and her children, Bilodeau says she is blessed to have such support from the community.
Door County Habitat for Humanity continues to look for more volunteers and a partner family for its 41st home build next year. During the dedication, Bilodeau and the volunteers remembered Roger Nulton, a 23-year veteran of Door County Habitat for Humanity home builds who died earlier this year.
