The Oswego County Habitat for Humanity (OCHFH) chapter recently announced the completion of another home in Oswego County.
With the help of volunteers, local companies and unions, and the sweat equity of the future homeowners, OCHFH was able to provide a beautifully remodeled home at 565 West First St. in Fulton at an affordable price for a local family.
Over the course of several months, countless dedicated individuals came together to transform this old house into a home that holds the promise of a brighter future, said Samuel Raponi, OCHFH executive director.
The extensive renovations included updated electrical service provided by EM Electric, plumbing and heating upgrades serviced by Yager’s Plumbing & Heating, Cloverleaf Garage Door, Inc. added a new look for the owners garage, Beach Construction rebuilt kitchen cabinets and finished trim work throughout the project. The All-Around Paint and Wash Co. of Fulton volunteered their time by putting the finishing touches on the front porch with new handrails. With some help from the City of Fulton Fire Department, a new front porch deck was built and they installed smoke detectors throughout the house. The City of Fulton Code Enforcement team ensured a safe environment prior to completion for our newest Oswego County Habitat for Humanity Family Partners.
“The recipient of this Habitat for Humanity home is Sarah Hayden, a resilient member of our community who has shown extraordinary dedication to improving the circumstances of her family,” Raponi said. “Sarah and her partner, Tim Richmond, and their family, and our entire community celebrated this momentous occasion during an open house celebration held Nov. 1 at the new home’s location.”
Habitat for Humanity has a long-standing history of empowering individuals and building communities across the nation, Raponi said. With this completed home, they have not only delivered a safe and affordable place to live but also the gift of empowerment and the tools for a brighter future.
