From Habitat for Humanity:
Habitat for Humanity of Cecil County and Harford Habitat for Humanity have merged. The new affiliate name is Habitat for Humanity Susquehanna. While the name has changed, their mission to partner with families and the community to build and repair homes remains the same.
The new affiliate is enthusiastic to combine resources and cultivate new relationships in both Harford and Cecil Counties. Habitat for Humanity Susquehanna will have an even greater impact on the region as it helps deserving low-income families achieve homeownership and receive critical home repairs. Since 1993, the two affiliates had served more than 150 families by building 62 homes and repairing 127.
“We will partner with more communities, build and repair more homes and ultimately serve more families through this merger,” says Executive Director Joann Blewett.
The merged affiliate moves forward with a combined Board of Directors and all employees. Under the merger, Pam Ruff will serve as board president of Habitat for Humanity Susquehanna and Joann Blewett will continue as the Executive Director.
The public is invited to join the staff, Board, partner family and volunteers of Habitat for Humanity Susquehanna in celebrating its first home dedication of the newly merged affiliate on September 9, 10 am, at 23 Cherry Lane in Elkton, MD.
