Families receive keys for homes they helped build
February 8, 2013
Maria Gallegos built her own home through the Mountainlands Community Housing Trust Mutual Self Help Home program. Keys were given to five new Self Help program homeowners during a Feb. 6 open house.
"This was a very successful group," said Scott Loomis, Moutainlands Executive Director. "It was one of the shortest completion times we’ve had, with five months, one week and one day. And that’s because they worked so hard."
The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Rural Development State Director Dave Conine congratulated the families for participating in the program.
"I’m slightly biased, but I really think it’s the best program in USDA," he said. "This is more than you getting a home. Your work has paid off for you, as well as for your community."
