Covenant Life Church and a group of 14 volunteers insulated the foundation of the home, 1521 Slayton St., Grand Haven. Helping was a team of volunteers from Vida Abundante in Teguc, Honduras. Parishioners from that church came to Grand Haven this week to serve here, and were led by members of Covenant Life Church.

This is the 55th home that Tri-Cities Area Habitat for Humanity has built or rehabbed in the area. The Exton family will be putting in 500 hours of sweat equity into their home, and in return, they will have a 0 percent mortgage which will make the home affordable.

The family is also required to attend budget counseling and workshops to help them be successful homeowners.
