Habitat for Humanity of Greater Fort Wayne recently celebrated construction of its 200th home with a special downtown building party.

Volunteers gathered at the AEP Plaza to frame the first floor walls of Mia Stevenson’s new two-story home. The walls were transported by Home Lumber of New Haven to Fuller’s Landing, Habitat’s current subdivision, where volunteers put them in place on the home site.

Habitat home owners accepted into the program must complete up to 400 hours of sweat equity on their houses and other Habitat projects. A prospective homeowner also must successfully pass more than 20 hours of sustainable home ownership classes and repay an interest-free mortgage back to Habitat.
