Cedar Valley Habitat for Humanity breaks ground on first project in Fairfax

Fairfax (KWWL) — Cedar Valley Habitat for Humanity (CVHFH) will break ground, Wednesday, June 12, on the organization’s first project in Fairfax.

CVHFH will be providing affordable housing for four families in the area.

The organization plans to start construction later this month.

“We are excited to partner with the community of Fairfax and serve four area families,” said Kelly Lamb, executive director.

“We believe everyone deserves a stable home and Fairfax is a community in which these families will be able to grow and prosper.”

The groundbreaking ceremony will be at 5 p.m. in the Giddings Subdivision.

CVHFH bought the property from St. John the XXII Catholic Church in late 2018.

CVHFH is partnering with area groups and businesses to make the project happen. Those partners include Fairfax State Savings Bank, Frontier Coop, The McIntyre Foundation, Alliant Energy and the Housing Fund for Linn County.

CVHFH is a nonprofit housing ministry dedicated to building and rehabilitating simple, decent and affordable homes for families in Linn and Benton counties.
