Groundbreaking set for Habitat for Humanity house 18

April 28, 2017 GMT

A groundbreaking ceremony for the next Kittitas County Habitat for Humanity home project is set for May 6 in Cle Elum, according to a news release.

The start of the nonprofit’s 18th project since it began locally in 1992 will be celebrated with a ceremony at 9 a.m. at the home site at 1300 Sunlight Drive, in the Sunlight Waters rural development near Cle Elum.

Guadalupe and Orlando Nava-Avila-Santos and their four children, Francisco, Alondra, Esmeralda and Andres will be the recipients of the home once it’s built. The family is required to complete 500 sweat-equity hours along with homeowner education courses.

The family currently rents a two-bedroom mobile home in Ellensburg, but deals with overcrowding and issues like a leaking roof and mold.

Light refreshments will be served after the groundbreaking ceremony.
