Door County Habitat for Humanity announced Thursday that Jacob and Amanda Purdy and their five children would be the partner family for its 41st home build. The organization had been struggling to find a family that qualified for the home, having been forced to send many away to seek additional financial counseling and apply at a later time. Megan Dietz of Door County Habitat for Humanity says this was the fourth time the Purdy family had applied to be a partner family and made the necessary changes in their lifestyle to be selected this time around.
Dietz says the organization will now grab the permits needed to start construction and will hopefully start working on the Sturgeon Bay site in the coming weeks. You can contact Door County Habitat for Humanity about possible volunteer opportunities associated with its 41st home build.
