Exit Realty Dedicates Another Habitat Home!

Real Estate Agent with Exit Lone Star Realty 589381

EXIT Realty Corp. International Invites You to Columbia for the Dedication of its Latest Corporately Sponsored Habitat for Humanity Build.

Ceremony scheduled for July 24th

Since April, real estate agents from EXIT Realty offices across South Carolina and volunteers from the community at large have come together to help build a new home and provide a fresh start to Columbia single mom, Debra Lewis and her son, Ben.

Debbie and 23-year-old Ben lived in a second-floor apartment at the time they were approved for the Habitat program, but due to poor living conditions, both in the unit and the neighborhood, they had to vacate and are temporarily living with Debbie's oldest son.

Ben is mentally disabled and he would rise in the middle of the night and walk around the apartment complex unbeknownst to Debbie. Debbie, herself, suffers from osteoarthritis and is primarily wheelchair bound. Even though they had lived in the same unit for more than 10 years, the landlord denied their request for a downstairs unit.

Even with their disabilities, both Debbie and Ben managed to earn "sweat equity" hours and partner to the fullest with Habitat for Humanity. She is very excited to finally have a home that is comfortable and will meet the special needs of her family.

The dedication ceremony is scheduled for 10:00 am on Saturday, July 24th at the site of the home at 1000 Rockyknoll Drive, Columbia, SC. The press and community are invited to attend.

Other ongoing EXIT Realty Corp. International corporately sponsored Habitat for Humanity builds are located in Salt Lake City, UT and coming soon to Cornwall, ON.
