It’s the day a local family has been waiting for.
The Hanline’s moved into their specially constructed Habitat home in York County on Saturday.
Before they received their keys, they, along with community members and Habitat for Humanity workers and volunteers gathered at the Goodwill Fire Company in Jacobus to celebrate the achievement.
Habitat for Humanity began building the home along Meadow Street in Jacobus in September 2013 for Laurie Hanline and her two sons, Jacob and Allen.
Allen is physically and mentally disabled and the new home will give him more space to move around in his walker.
“This is going to change my grandson’s life. He is going to be able to get in his walker and walk around because they made it handicapped accessible,” says Christine Heinrich, the boys’ Grandmother.
New homeowner Laurie Hanline says, “To see him be able to be independent and go wherever he wants to go in the house is really what this whole thing is about. This is the day we have been waiting for, for a long time, so it’s very exciting.”
The building project was completely funded by donations from local businesses, churches, and people in the community.
