Walls go up for new Habitat Home in York County

The walls of a brand new Habitat for Humanity home in York county are officially up!  Close to 20 volunteers helped raise the exterior walls and roof of the home along Kennedy Court in Hanover on Friday.  The home is being constructed for Abbey Sheely and her 13-year-old daughter, MeKeyla who has a severe form of cerebral palsy.  The one story home will help MeKeyla move around more easily in her wheelchair and will also eliminate the need for her mom to carry her up four flights up stairs everyday.

Jeff Sheely MeKeyla’s grandfather says, “It means a lot to me and to Mekeyla because she is 13-years-old now and she will be able to get around the house by herself in her wheelchair, when her friends come over she can be with her friends and be able to do things by herself and get around more, more independently so that will mean a lot to her.”

Volunteers are hoping to have the home completed by November.
