Brief Description: Providing affordable homeownership in collaboration with high school trades training. Goodhue County Habitat for Humanity is partnering with Kenyon-Wanamingo School District (IDS# 2172) to construct an affordable single-family home in Kenyon. This home will be constructed on a GCHFH property near the high school. GCHFH serves as the general contractor with KW Schools providing an instructor to supervise and train construction students in safety and construction techniques. Students will receive hands-on, transferable skills in home construction. Qualified subcontractors will perform more technical aspects of home construction and will provide students with general orientation to their individual trades. GCHFH will sell the home to a deserving family who will assist with construction of their home and receive homeownership and financial training. Other GCHFH volunteers will aid with construction as needed and will set an example for the homeowner and students to continue volunteering for non-profit organizations of their choosing. This home is for a family of three with three bedrooms and two bathrooms. GCHFH provides homeownership opportunities to families in the 30-80% AMI range for Goodhue County, providing those with the most need with benefits of homeownership.
