(FRANKFORT- WDKY) We all know Habitat for Humanity builds home for low-income families and helps them find affordable mortgages. Turning over the keys to a grateful family never gets old for the builders. But what you may not realize is that Habitat also helps families with smaller projects o make their current homes more livable.
That type of help is often directed toward veterans. The agency says more than 40,000 Kentucky veterans live in homes with major problems.
Brigadier General Ben Adams is a member of the Habitat for Humanity Board of Directors.
He said, “We’ve replaced roofs, plumbing, insulation, anything that we can to reduce utility bills and allow whatever meager money they may have not to have to continually go out to pay for bills.”
Former Commissioner of the Kentucky Department for Veterans Affairs Heather French Henry said many veterans are too proud to ask for help with housing costs, but she’s seen the need firsthand.
“Being able to provide them with substantive care they need within the home they’re living is really a great way to say thank you for their service and sacrifice.”
