On July 12th, members of the Porterville community joined Habitat staff, the “Building Hope in Porterville” Committee and Habitat’s newest homeowner to dedicate the fourth Habitat house on “G” street.
Mike Barbera from Believers Church of Porterville started the event with an invocation then gathered all guests together to help with a group dedication prayer. Anita Rodriguez, Habitat program assistant, presented the family with a bible.
Guests were able to tour the house and see the amazing results of a community working together to build homes, community and hope.
