Media Contact: Dave Lavallee, 401-874-5862WHAT: The University of Rhode Island chapter of Habitat for Humanity, South County Habitat for Humanity, students, faculty, volunteers, and local community members to welcome the Jason and Cora Stone family to the first home completed in the North Road project. The home was built through funds raised by students, staff, faculty, and alumni of the University of Rhode Island. Students spent months building the home in partnership with Habitat volunteers and the Stone Family. Tours of the building will be provided, and the home will be dedicated to the Stone family. The family has two children. Habitat homeowners buy their homes with a 25-year, 0 percent interest mortgage and contribute 450 hours of sweat equity. This partnership with the homeowner is part of Habitat's philosophy of a hand-up not a hand-out.
