Habitat for Humanity dedicates Clovis home

Posted by BoNhia Lee on December 25, 2013 

Habitat for Humanity Fresno County also spread some holiday cheer this week by dedicating a new home in Clovis.

The nonprofit homebuilder and its funding partner, Thrivent Financial for Lutherans, celebrated the construction of the Dickey family home on Gibson Avenue on 

Saturday and handed the family the keys to their new house.

The 1,100-square-foot, two bedroom home is a welcome change for Brandy Dickey and her two sons who lived in a moldy apartment that had sewage problems, Habitat said.

The toilet in the apartment above theirs chronically overflowed sending waste through the floor and walls which caused the ceiling in the bathroom to collapse. The landlord charged extra for the repairs, Habitat said.

The home dedication marks the 123rd family served by Habitat since 1985. The organization helps about 13 families a year. This is Thrivent Financial for Lutheran’s eighth home built in partnership with Habitat.
