LUDINGTON, Michigan, June 14, 2018 — With the help of volunteers and community partners, Habitat for Humanity will host its fifth Neighbor to Neighbor (N2N) Neighborhood Revitalization Project on June 18, 19 and 20th.
Homeowners who meet eligibility requirements are able to receive help with exterior repairs, cleanup, painting, landscaping, etc. Habitat works with local officials and trade professionals to determine the greatest housing needs in Mason County. Overall, the program aims to improve quality of life for homeowners, create neighborhood relationships and assist in increasing property values within a neighborhood. Improvements will often result in reduced utility expenses and elimination of safety hazards for the recipient.
To date, the Neighborhood Revitalization has helped neighborhoods in the City of Ludington, City of Scottville and the Village of Fountain. The program has been successful in rallying neighbors in Mason County as well as organizations outside the area who use this program as a missions trip. In whole, the program embodies the concept of “Neighbors Helping Neighbors” N2N.
Volunteers of all ages & skill levels are welcome on all or any of the N2N project days (3 total) . The scope of work will include weed/brush/trash removal, painting, landscaping, cleanup and minor exterior improvements. Tools, supplies and safety equipment will be provided.
