1800 Little Mount Church Road.

“That’s my address,” Melissa Davis said excitedly as she heard Spencer County Habitat for Humanity President Scott Street recite the location of her soon-to-be home. 

Davis, her four children and many Spencer County Habitat for Humanity community partners and volunteers broke ground Sunday for the four bedroom, two bathroom home.

 Davis wiped tears from her eyes as she explained that without her faith in God and many generous community volunteers, her dream of having a home for herself and her four children might never have come true.

“I just kept believing that this was going to happen for my family,” she said.

 The home will be the third home built by SCHFH in partnership with the selected families.

Habitat Construction Committee Chair Kelly Creed said crews hope to start work this week.

The home should be completed before the end of the year if weather permits.
