Habitat for Humanity building neighborhood for Upstate vets

News

Upstate veterans have a new place to call home thanks to a nonprofit organization. 

Habitat for Humanity of Greenville County is renovating and building homes in the Grace Point neighborhood.

So far, Habitat has placed three veterans and their families in homes. That number will soon double. 

Veterans in the program learn about mortgages and other aspects of home ownership through 26 hours of classes. They also put in 200 hours of what Habitat calls sweat equity by helping with the construction project.

The program can take up to two years to complete. 

“Veterans have a special place in our heart because they’ve served our country and they’ve sacrificed themselves so that our country can maintain its freedom,” said Monroe Free, president and CEO of Habitat for Humanity of Greenville County.
