Pataskala, OHIO 4/9/16 — Retired Sgt. William Kibbey (U.S.A.F.) will be able to park a little smoother and enjoy unhindered access to his home this spring thanks to a Habitat for Humanity-MidOhio Home Repair Program for U.S. Veterans and generous support from The Home Depot Foundation, Thrivent Builds, Worthington Industries and The Lindorf Family Foundation.
Kibbey’s home, in Pataskala, Ohio, was in dire need of a new driveway and wheelchair accessibility. A veteran of the U.S. Air Force, Sgt. Kibbey has been working with Habitat MidOhio, completing his sweat equity hours while the home was being adapted. Habitat program participants must complete a number of sweat equity hours in addition to being able to pay a discounted portion of the construction expenses.
The Veterans Build Program is an extension of Habitat for Humanity’s commitment to providing affordable housing solutions to folks in need throughout central Ohio. The Veterans Build program provides additional discounts to U.S. Veterans based on years of service.
“This country owes an immeasurable debt to each and every one of our military veterans. The Veterans Build Home Repair program is just one way Habitat MidOhio is able to honor their service and make a lasting impact on their lives.” said E.J. Thomas, President & CEO of Habitat MidOhio.
