KeyWorth Bank Supports Its 7th Habitat Home

KeyWorth Bank Supports Its 7th Habitat Home

KeyWorth Bank recently opened a new financial center in the Sandy Springs/Dunwoody area and on that occasion presented Habitat North Central Georgia with a check for $3,000 to support a home that was recently completed for the Pauk family in Cumming.  This is the seventh home that KeyWorth Bank has co-sponsored over the years. The funds helped to build a new home for Felix Pauk and his wife Alina who were born in Burma.  The United Nations Refugee Program assisted the family in moving from Burma to Malaysia and eventually to the United States in 2010.  Felix and Alina have three young children; Josephine, Lal and Christopher.  Both parents work for Tyson and have lived in Cumming for the last two years.

 

Habitat for Humanity – North Central Georgia is a non-profit, Christian housing ministry that builds simple, decent homes for purchase by low income families who demonstrate a capacity for responsible homeownership. Since its inception in 1995, 250 homes have been completed and over 975 family members have been served in North Fulton, Cherokee and Forsyth/Dawson counties. Each family is required to attend 6 educational classes and perform 200 sweat equity hours. Families earn between 30% and 60% of the Atlanta area median income and purchase their homes from Habitat which provides them with a 25-year, no-interest loan.  Family members work side by side with the volunteers, sponsors, and Habitat staff to build their homes. These families not only get to experience the pride of homeownership but they also know that their lives will be changed forever.
