Habitat for Humanity of Kershaw County dedicated a new home to the Atkinson family.

“This was a joyous day for the Atkinson family as they begin life in their new home,” Charlotte Rankin, executive director of Habitat for Humanity said.

The Atkinson family contributed more than 250 Sweat Equity Hours toward the completion of their home. Holly Atkinson and her four children now have a safe, affordable home in which to live and the entire community continues to feel the effects of Habitat’s work toward providing affordable housing, Rankin said.

“The work of Habitat for Humanity strives to provide access to affordable housing as a foundation for breaking the cycle of poverty in Kershaw County,”Rankin said.

Homes are built by volunteers and sold to partner families with no profit/nointerest mortgages. Since its inception in 1992, Habitat
for Humanity of Kershaw County has built and/or renovated 36 homes in Kershaw County, providing simple, affordable housing to families in need.
