On Sunday, May 17, 2009 Volunteers of Habitat for Humanity of Wayne County (HFHWC) PA and their new partner family broke ground on the new building site on Columbus Avenue in Palmyra Township, near Hawley. 
The latest Habitat project is for partner family Al and Bobby Jo Memedi and their daughter Rebecca.
Bobby Jo said after the groundbreaking, " Thank you Habitat for allowing us to be able to get this house and the opportunity to raise our daughter in a home with a yard."  This will be Wayne County Habitat’s 14th home to be built.  The start date for building has not been determined yet, because HFHWC is still waiting for final permits.
Habitat for Humanity of Wayne County is an independent affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International.  Habitat for Humanity of Wayne County constructs inexpensive but sturdy homes in partnership with qualified low-income families who might otherwise never be able to afford homes of their own. This is not a giveaway program. In addition to putting in hundreds of hours of "sweat" equity 300 to be precise. Partner families purchase their homes.
They dedicated their first house in Wayne County in 1993.
If interested in volunteering on one of HFHWC's committees, or help with the building, or even with a donation call (570)251-8115.
