GADSDEN CHAMBER OF COMMERCE: Gadsden-Etowah Habitat for Humanity announces new partnerships

Officials from KAF and Wooden Bakeries gathered recently to announce a new partnership between the two companies.  

Gadsden Chamber of Commerce issued the following announcement on January 22.

The Habitat for Humanity board of directors approved three more families as prospective homeowners at the January meeting. The families joining the Habitat partnership program are: Juanika Orr and her three children, Jamarion, Adrianona, and Zachary; Elizabeth and Josh Rector; and Lori Graham.

They join two other families whose homes are under construction on Springfield Ave. in E. Gadsden. All the families are required to complete 300 hours of “sweat equity” volunteer work, make a down payment and pay the first year’s insurance premium, attend 12 homebuyer partnership classes and monthly family focus budget counseling. When the house is complete, it will be sold to the family with a zero percent interest 20-year mortgage. The Habitat house is affordable because of volunteer labor, zero percent interest, and no profit added to the sale of the home.

Habitat for Humanity is always looking for volunteers to serve on committees or participate in the construction of a new home. Locally, the Habitat affiliate does not do repairs on houses, but builds them new from the ground up.

Habitat for Humanity is a volunteer driven organization. For more information about volunteering, please visit or contact
