Habitat for Humanity of New Castle County completed a new home in Simonds Gardens in the Route 9 Corridor between New Castle and Wilmington.
The new home was a collaborative effort with the homeowner, Habitat NCC, Wells Fargo, Blenheim Homes, and New Castle County.
It’s the first-of-its-kind partnership between Habitat NCC and Blenheim Homes, under the Moderately Priced Dwelling Units ordinance in New Castle County.
Kevin Smith, CEO of Habitat NCC, said the “ongoing commitment in Simonds Gardens has been multifaceted, encompassing new home construction, essential repairs, and wide-reaching neighborhood revitalization efforts.”
Since 1986, Habitat for Humanity of New Castle County (HFHNCC) has built more than 290 homes and served over 1,000 families.
Habitat engages residents in improving their neighborhoods, provides free critical home repairs to preserve existing homeownership, provides interventions so that older adults can age in place, builds affordable housing, and conducts financial literacy and home maintenance education for families in its homeownership program.
