Habitat for Humanity of Cape Cod is pleased to announce the dedication of a new home at 108 Orchard Road in Mashpee. Over 100 community volunteers worked alongside future homeowner, Latoya Green, in many phases of construction from raising walls and interior framing and trim, through sidewall shingling, laying floors and painting of the home. The ceremony, which is open to the public, will take place on Saturday, April 22 at 2:00pm.
The ceremony will honor community contributors and volunteers, as well as the hard work and determination of the family purchasing the home. A home blessing will be offered by the Wampanoag Tribe’s Medicine Man, Guy Cash.Attendees will have the opportunity to view the completed home and enjoy light refreshments following the ceremony.
Ms. Green shared a few thoughts anticipating her new home’s completion: “To have my own home in the same town my Tribe calls home, is a dream come true. I can’t thank Habitat for Humanity and all the volunteers enough for making this possible. I’m excited to start this new chapter in my life and will never forget how this community helped make that happen. I will pay it forward”.
The land for this home was donated by the Town of Mashpee. In May, Habitat volunteers will complete the 18th Habitat home in the Town of Mashpee on Quinaquisset Ave. Both homes will be sold at an affordable price and deed restricted to be affordable in perpetuity, upon any future resale.
A few handmade housewarming gifts including bookcases built, painted and filled by students at Falmouth Academy and Camp Burgess in Sandwich will also be presented to the homeowner and children during the ceremony.
