From Habitat for Humanity Susquehanna:
Habitat for Humanity Susquehanna celebrates the sixth home construction completed in partnership with Harford Technical High School.
This particular home was built by 80 students in the construction trades program at Harford Technical High School and earned an Energy-Star certification due to its green features, including low-flow plumbing fixtures, green fiber insulation and Energy-Star appliances and lighting.
The home was built over a period of 18 months in partnership with The Bank of America Foundation, Battelle, Building Congress and Exchange, Chesapeake Environmental Management, Harford County Government, Harford County Public Schools and Maryland Affordable Housing Trust. On May 23rd, the 966 square-foot home was transported from Harford Technical High School to its permanent address in Aberdeen by AYD Transport.
The home will be dedicated to Santa Pimentel and her two sons Lorenzo and Alonzo. Pimentel said, “After experiencing numerous traumatic, abusive and painful experiences in life, including the loss of my husband, I was ready for a change and ready for a home. I was ready to take control of my life to offer a better future to my loving boys.”
