Habitat for Humanity Celebrates New Development

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

 Mid-Yellowstone Valley Habitat for Humanity held a groundbreaking celebration Friday for a new 16-lot development in the Billings heights.

The project is funded by an anonymous sponsor and financed by Yellowstone Bank. The new subdivision off of Dorothy Lane will consist of two cul-de-sacs, each with eight lots. Habitat for Humanity strives to raise families out of substandard and poverty housing. Habitat's executive director Kathleen O'Neil said that the donation of land is a huge blessing for the organization.

"To know that we have a place for four years to be building is a huge worry off of our plate, so we can spend our time on other matters," O'Neil said.

Habitat will begin construction on the new subdivision's first home in August at MontanaFair.
