Mayor Domenic J. Sarno joined with Greater Springfield Habitat for Humanity Executive Director Aimee Giroux and Family Services Manager Deborah O’Mara along with Ana Castro and her children for a house dedication ceremony today. The newly built home in Springfield is a result of the collaborative efforts between Greater Springfield Habitat for Humanity and the City of Springfield through the city’s HOME funds. The Castro family are the proud homeowners of this newly built home.
Construction began in November 2019 and with the Castro Family’s sweat equity and the help of over 200 volunteers in partnership with AmeriCorps National Civilian Community Corps, Community Works, and students from local college this home is now completed.
Mayor Sarno states, “My administration and I have been long time partners with Habitat for Humanity. I cannot say enough about this program, which brings a number of volunteers and generosity from businesses, including sweat equity from the homeowner, which all goes to make for a stronger street and neighborhood with the new families coming in. This was a very heartfelt dedication ceremony. I wish Ms. Castro all the best as she and her family begin making memories in their new home.”
