Sussex County Habitat to Host the New Outlook Pioneers' Computer Donation Program

The Sussex County Habitat for Humanity office in Georgetown will host the New Outlook Pioneers' Computer Donation Program in their efforts to refurbish and upgrade donated PCs and Laptops up to 10 years old for deserving groups and individuals. All computers donated will go to preschools, churches, non-profits and persons with disabilities.
The program has two goals: to encourage and foster the learning of basic educational skills through the use of modern technology and to provide cost-effective technology solutions to empower the non-profit sector. For example, PCs donated to preschools contain 42 educational games and programs. These help preschoolers learn math, vocabulary, reading, language and problem solving.
Contact Steve to volunteer, donate or request equipment by email or call 908-955-3721.

Meet Our Newest Partner Family!
Sussex County Habitat held a signing ceremony on Wednesday, January 16th, at our Georgetown office for the Lewis Family. During a signing ceremony, we outline expectations for the relationship between our affiliate and the new partner family. Executive Director, Kevin Gilmore , introduces the staff to the new partner families and encourages ongoing communication throughout the program. We celebrate this important first step in the process because we understand what it means for each family as they start the path to home ownership.

Please help us welcome the Lewis Family into the Habitat family!

Congratulations to Sussex County Habitat's Newest Homeowner!

Congratulations to the White Family for closing on their new Habitat home in December!  They put in a lot of hard work prior to their settlement.

Before closing, each Habitat family must put in at least 200 hours of sweat equity, complete pre- and post- purchase education classes, and save for closing costs.

Delmarva Christian High School
Students from Delmarva Christian High School spent their two week J-Term with Sussex County Habitat for Humanity.  These wonderful students worked in the ReStore and built sheds for Habitat homes.  They did an amazing job and are welcome back any time!
This week,  we welcomed an  AmeriCorps NCCC  (National Civilian Community Corps) team made up of eight impressive young adults who have done great work all over the country.

They will be with us for another two weeks, and will help us with many different projects!
