After receiving a donated lot of land earlier this year, Gloucester County Habitat for Humanity (GCHFH) was able to subdivide the property and will be building two homes. The lot at 876 Tanyard Road is a veteran’s build for Rosa Pineiro and her son Elijah. Rosa served two tours in Afghanistan, serving in the Marine Corps. She is in the process of adopting her two nephews as well who recently lost their mother unexpectedly, and the father is unable to care for the children. The lot at 878 Tanyard Road will be home to Tiaera Ratliff and son, Ethan.
“Oct. 15 will be a big day for our affiliate and for Rosa and Tiaera” said Anthony Isabella, executive director of GCHFH. “The lives of these two families will be changing drastically over the next year and for them to have the support of their community is very important” he later added.
Gloucester County Freeholder Director Robert M. Damminger said, “Gloucester County’s Habitat for Humanity does an amazing job at putting people together with homes and programs that will help them build a wonderful future for themselves and their families and these two families are so well deserving.”
Freeholder Heather Simmons, liaison to the Department of Economic Development and Public Works said, “We are proud to be a partner with Gloucester County Habitat for Humanity to help our residents become homeowners. The sweat equity and commitment that the new homeowners put into their homes is a testament to their determination to become a part of their community. This will be a wonderful build.”
The ground breaking ceremony will be located at 876 and 878 Tanyard Road in Deptford on Oct. 15 at 10 a.m. GCHFH would like to invite the entire community to join them in this ceremony.
Gloucester County Habitat for Humanity is a community-driven nonprofit organization that develops working partnerships with local businesses, churches, community groups and other individuals to successfully tackle a significant social problem—affordable, safe and decent housing for all.
