Welcome home” were the words that were repeated several times to Becky Gable-Giblin and her daughter Mariah during the dedication at their new home this past weekend.
Putnam County Habitat for Humanity hosted the dedication of their tenth house on Sunday. The house is located at 1366 North Defiance Street in Ottawa. Giblin and her daughter are the partner family members who will live in the house.
“This house is going to be life changing for us,” Becky said. She said the attached garage, wide halls, no steps and lift inside the house were among the many things she appreciates about this new home.
The home is wheelchair accessible with everything built on one level, including thresholds, doorways and hallways. This will be the fifth home Putnam County Habitat for Humanity has built to meet special needs of someone who is living in the home.
