Habitat Bucks dedicated its 117th residence Tuesday in Morrisville to a family celebrating home ownership. Francis Kinyunjuri, Anne Mathaiya, and their two kids Karen and John had been living in a two-bedroom apartment in Bristol.
Now, 211 Woodland Avenue is their official home. This house is the second of four adjacent lots built in the Morrisville neighborhood through Habitat Bucks.
“One of the home features that I am most excited about is space for a dining room table,” Anne said. “Gathering together at the table is an important part of our lives.”
Family Program Director Stefanie Clark explained the importance of home ownership in the Bucks County community.
“Having a stable home really makes a big difference in a family’s life,” Clark said. “And that
extends into the community. A lot of our homeowners continue to work on Habitat houses, and they also get more involved in their communities.”
Construction Director Mike Fallon worked on the home for several months. He attributed the project’s success to the hard work done by volunteers and the family.
“The families get the opportunity to see what’s behind the walls. It’s fun. I enjoy working with volunteers, you get to teach them a thing or two.”
Habitat Bucks will be hosting an information session in August for their newest home on Cedar Avenue in Croydon. For more on Habitat Bucks and their upcoming projects, check out habitatbucks.org.
