A Millville woman who recently adopted her five grandchildren will be receiving a home from Cache Valley Habitat for Humanity.

The international organization strives to provide affordable housing and shelter for families in need. This project is the first home the Cache Valley branch has done in three years.

“Getting a family into a home and seeing the stability it gives them makes me feel really great,” said Cheryl Brunson, who works for Cache Valley Habitat for Humanity.

The family receiving the home went through a series of selection committees and met the qualifications. These included low income, stable employment, and ability to afford the extended mortgage at the end of the build.

Todd Cottle, the executive director of Cache Valley Habitat for Humanity, said the timeline is unknown for the home build.  

“We try to build the home,” Cottle said, “with as much donated labor and discounted materials as possible to help reduce the costs for the family when they take on the extended mortgage,”

Cottle said the timeline depends on weather, volunteers and donated materials.

Coombs Plumbing, Savage Conveying, Geneva Rock and Immaculate Homes have all donated labor and materials to the project this far.
