Habitat for Humanity of Boone County dedicated its third build, the Zionsville Presbyterian Build last month, for a single mom, Valerie Bevard, and her two sons, Clayton and Camden. This year’s build, at 124 Ball St. in Lebanon had more than 30 volunteers. More than 150 volunteers from the Boone County communities came together to provide the volunteers needed for the ZPC build.
Bevard and her sons moved into their new home just in time for the Thanksgiving holiday.
Steve Furste, executive director for the Boone County Habitat affiliate, said: “This is such a great day as it gives us the opportunity to celebrate yet one more home dedication and provide a new home for one more Boone County family in need. We at Habitat are so blessed to have so many great volunteers and business partners who help us each year.”
Valerie Bevard, the new homeowner, said: “Habitat has given my family a fresh and new start. With Christmas right here it is the best present ever. I am so grateful for everything that Habitat and all the volunteers have done for me and my family.”
A special present of beds for each family member was also given to the family.
Reverend Anthony Stone of Centenary United Methodist Church performed the house blessing for each room and said: “Habitat for Humanity is changing lives in Boone County. Not only was I honored to be a part of the house blessing and dedication service this past weekend, I was also able to volunteer at this several times. It is such a blessing to be invested in a faith-based community ministry that offers both individual and community-wide transformation.”
