“The first time we teamed up with Habitat for Humanity was truly inspirational and gratifying and we vowed to come back to help again,” said Singleton. “It’s beyond rewarding to be able to help families achieve the American Dream. The work Habitat for Humanity does is incredible and I hope everyone will consider taking part in a build project.”
This is the second time Singleton, who is a leader in the Northeast Regional Council of Carpenters, and his staff, have teamed up with serves as President of the New Jersey Carpenter Contractor Trust (NJCCT), a network of union carpentry and construction laborHabitat for Humanity’s Burlington affiliate for a home building project.
On Saturday, a team of skilled carpenters from Local 255, organized by Singleton, will descend upon the Mount Holly site to help build a duplex where a previous home had burned down.
“Assemblyman Singleton’s dedication to Habitat for Humanity Burlington County’s mission is apparent through his hard work on the construction site, advocacy for the organization, as well as his consistent involvement in the builds. Thanks to Assemblyman Singleton and the team from Local 255 two families will finally be able to experience the stability and security of owning their own home,” said Lori Leonard, Executive Director of Habitat for Humanity’s Burlington County affiliate.
The new home owners will include a single woman in one unit and a single mother and her four-year old daughter in another unit. Both have dreamed of owning a home for many years, which is now possible thanks to the special financing rates offered through Habitat for Humanity’s program.
Both women will be able to purchase their homes at a 0% interest rate mortgage after spending 250 hours helping to build their house, the houses of others and attending homeowner education workshops.
