Marquette Homeowner Selected

McPherson Area Habitat for Humanity is pleased to announce that Angela Behanna and her family have been selected as homeowners for the 2013 Habitat house to be built at 108 North Jefferson in Marquette. Angela is a single mother of four children; Joseph age 16, Amanda 12, Riley 10, and Gabby 8. Although Angela is busy with family, work, and school, she will schedule 200 hours of sweat equity into the ranch style house her family will soon call home.

The Marquette community is supporting this project in numerous ways from the impressive attendance at the informational meeting to the many offers of professional assistance in construction. Preparation work is scheduled to begin soon with the blitz build week slated for July.  Watch for specific dates and volunteer opportunities posted as a Build Schedule on the McPherson Area Habitat for Humanity website. If you are interested in helping, contact 620-241-0886 for more information.

The McPherson Area affiliate of Habitat for Humanity is accepting applications for its next home in Marquette, Kan. If you, or if you know someone who can answer yes to all of the following questions, you’re on your way to owning your own brand new home.


Habitat Build in Galva

If you have driven by 112 Empire in Galva lately you have noticed the builders in Galva and McPherson Area Habitat for Humanity have started building another home in McPherson County. It will be the 25th home built in the county since McPherson Area Habitat for Humanity built its first home in 1993 and the second in Galva. The ranch style house walls will go up on Saturday, September 22 – weather permitting. Lisa Brewer and daughters Nicole and Ashton and grandbaby Aaliyah have been selected as the newest homeowners. Currently living in Galva, Lisa is working to accumulate her 200 sweat equity hours required as a part of homeownership. Completion date for the house is by the end of the year, 2012. Volunteers will be needed as the house is being built. If you are interested in helping, contact Nick Nickelson at Nick’s Home Center (620-654-3650) in Galva for more information and scheduling.


Families Selected for New Habitat Homes

The Bruce and Angela Benham family have been selected as the new homeowners for the house located at 625 South Gildersleeve in McPherson.  Bruce and Angela have three children:  Wade age 5, Joselyn 3 and Isabel 1.  Construction has begun on the lot and the house should be complete by the end of November 2012.

The second homeowner is the Lisa Brewer family.  They have been selected for the house located in Galva at 110 South Empire.  Lisa is a single mother with daughter Nicole age 16, daughter Ashton 12 and 20 month old granddaughter Aaliyah. Construction is slated to begin soon.

Both families will be contributing sweat equity hours as the houses are being built.  McPherson Area Habitat for Humanity is pleased to join with the Benham’s and Brewer’s as they work toward moving into their new homes.  We also look forward to working with the McPherson and Galva communities as volunteer opportunities are available during home construction.
