Homeownership is still the American Dream!

The American Dream!

American Housing is very involved in community projects and recently partnered up with the City of St. Petersburg, Florida and Habitat for Humanity of Pinellas County in order to build a new home and fulfill the dream of homeownership for a local family.

At a small home dedication ceremony celebrating this achievement, Clarence Scott, St. Petersburg City Council Member, welcomed many from the community, including Lee Kretzer and Carla Slicker from American Housing, to the “Presenting of the Keys” to the new owner, Mr. Jones. Ron Spoor of Habitat Pinellas opened with a prayer. “We gather to celebrate the commitment and determination of Mr. Jones and to thank all of the people who worked together to turn Mr. Jones’s dream of homeownership into reality. May this home we dedicate today become a beacon of hope for him and others. Together we pray. Amen.”

American Housing Remodeling, Inc., through the City of St. Petersburg Neighborhood Stabilization Program, recently built this beautiful new home for Mr. Jones and his family. This achievement was celebrated at the home site on Tuesday, March 8, 2011 with members of the City of St. Petersburg City Council, members of the City’s NSP Program and members of Habitat for Humanity of Pinellas County.

At the ceremony, there were gifts for Mr. Jones and his family. A Habitat volunteer provided Mr. Jones with a “symbolic” Habitat for Humanity hammer to take care of those small jobs around the house. City of St. Petersburg Council Members Wingay Newton and Bill Dudley gave the proud new owners an American flag and Kevin Klucas gave a “Welcome” mat. David Fornek offered Mr. Jones a new Bible for him and his family.

Clarence Scott, City of St. Petersburg Council Member, then gave Mr. Jones the keys to his new home. A proud Mr. Jones then proceeded to thank the City and American Housing for helping him and his family achieve their dream of owning their own home.

Finally, the Reverend Daryl Sey from the St. John Missionary Baptist Church blessed this new home for Mr. Jones and his family.
