Habitat Cabarrus House Starts 10/4/08!!

By
Real Estate Agent with Leigh Brown & Associates, RE/MAX Executive

So you're feeling a little anxious these days?  Worried about the economy and the election?  Come get things back into perspective starting this Saturday, October 4 2008 as we begin the construction of the Leigh Brown house for Habitat Cabarrus in Concord NC.

Habitat Cabarrus

We have a family ready to go to work, ready to get out of substandard housing here in Cabarrus County- into a home of their own where they have a safe place to live-and can build their own wealth.

I've been setting aside a portion of each commission for the past two years to fund this house. I feel very strongly about giving back to the community in which I live and work-and this is more than me.  Many of my clients have matched my efforts and we are ALMOST funded on the house.  If you feel so moved, you can make a donation to the Leigh Brown house (tax-deductible of course).  $60 buys one square foot of the house.

If you're not entirely familiar with Habitat for Humanity-or perhaps have just never looked into the specifics of the mission-here's the scoop.   Our Partner Families aren't getting anything free-they are hard-working folks who make less than the median income in the area, perhaps have a credit glitch or three-but are willing to commit to extensive financial counseling, home maintenance classes, and are willing to spend their Saturdays building homes for others and then themselves.  Upon completion of the requirements, the Partner Families have a home built for them which is provided on an interest-free mortgage to make it as affordable as possible.  In Cabarrus County alone, over 110 families have boosted themselves out of substandard housing with a little help from friends-like you.

For more information, to find out the build schedule, or to volunteer, please email me today.  I am so proud to serve my community-I have received so much, I can do no less than give back in any way that I can.

Leigh, Habitat for Humanity is one of the most gratifying things we can do for the community.  We take our homes for granted.  These people appreciate us so much.  Great work.

Congrats on getting involved! I work with Gaston County's Habitat frequently. It is a great way to help someone who needs it and is willing to work for it. Good luck.
