Homeless to Habitat 2014

A Dream Come True

Family Promise of Cape May County and Habitat forHumanity Cape May County joined forces and celebrated the incredible journey of the Gilbert Family from Homeless to Habitat Homeowner.

In 2010 – Family Promise of Cape May County and its partner congregations helped Dorothy Gilbert and her five children (our 14th family) get back on their feet and find safe, affordable shelter.

In 2014 – Habitat for Humanity is proud to announce that the Gilberts had been selected as a Habitat homeowner family, and construction on their new home was completed December, 2014.

How people were a part of the Gilbert's dream of home ownership?  

Habitat for Humanity Cape May and Family Promise of Cape May County had a special reception to celebrate the "Blessing Project". Over 200 studs were decorated with blessings, prayers and messages for the Gilbert family. These studs were built into the walls of their house.

Would you like to volunteer and build a Habitat home? 

Houses are built by local volunteers and supervised by Habitat construction professionals. Both skilled and unskilled volunteers are welcome. Church congregations are also welcome to volunteer as a group.
