Habitat for Humanity House Blessing and Key Passing

Habitat for Humanity House Blessing and Key Passing: Jimarie Cruz-Sanchez and her two sons received the keys to her new Habitat for Humanity of Marion County three bedroom home during the Habitat for Humanity of Marion County house blessing and key passing ceremony on Pecan Road in Silver Springs Shores, Fla. on Thursday, April 29, 2021. Cruz-Sanchez was living in Puerto Rico when Category 5 Hurricane Maria hit on Sept. 16, 2017. She encountered so many hardships with scarce water, food and gasoline and no electric power that she decided to leave her home and move to the United States. Now she has a brand new home for herself and her two sons. Habitat for Humanity of Marion County has built 200 homes for families. The home was funded by Marion County Community Services, HOP(Homeownership Pool Program), as well as FHL Bank Atlanta. Phoenix Rising students helped build the home in the Youth Build program.
