Habitat For Humanity To Take Home Applications

Columbia Gorge Habitat For Humanity is looking for people who want to buy a home of their own and can’t afford it, and will be willing to help build their own home.  The group has one lot in Lyle and three in The Dalles, and will be taking applications in the coming weeks from families wishing to take part in the program.  Habitat’s Chip Wood says most of the labor in building the home is donated with the purchaser putting “sweat equity” into the house, so it can be sold to the homeowner at a much more affordable price.  Community meetings where applications will be available are planned for March 15 at 2 p.m. at Mid-Columbia Fire and Rescue on 1400 West 8th in The Dalles…March 17 at 6 p.m. at Westside Fire Department on 1185 Tucker Road in Hood River…and March 22 at 2 p.m. at the Lyle Fire Hall.
