(09/29/06) BAY SHORE - Habitat for Humanity is building a house in Suffolk County for Katrina victims who relocated to Long Island, but as of Friday it has not found a family to donate the home to.
Habitat for Humanity, a nonprofit organization that builds homes for needy families, received a grant to build a house for Katrina survivors in Suffolk. On Wednesday, the family lined up to take the Bay Shore house backed out, citing the need to stay close to relatives in Nassau. Habitat is now searching for a qualified family to take the house. The organization?s homes, built by volunteers, come with a standard zero-interest mortgage to repay building costs.
Earlier this week, the nonprofit completed its 103rd house in Suffolk County. The Bay Shore home could be completed by the end of this year, if a family is found in time.
