On April 13, a group of volunteers from the Victoria County United Way, which also includes DeWitt County, and the Golden Crescent Habitat for Humanity, are partnering to improve a home in Cuero.
The organizations are priming the home, located at 102 Josephine, before its painted, as well as cleaning up the yard in preparation for an eligible family to call it their own.
“Helping a family be able to move into an affordable home is not only good for that family, it’s also good for the entire community”, said Dolly Stokes, Executive Director of the Victoria County United Way. Cuero’s nine Habitat homes have added about $300,000 to the total tax base.
Qualified low income families have their dreams fulfilled with help from the Golden Crescent Habitat for Humanity, a Victoria County United Way local partner agency, and a non-profit Christian ecumenical housing ministry.
