Eyvette and Edwin Mercado are the homeowners who are partnering with Habitat for Humanity of Rhode Island Greater Providence on this build. The Mercado family will repay a no-interest 30 year mortgage for a simple, decently built home. In addition to qualifying financially for a mortgage, the Mercados also volunteered 400 hours on the construction of their home.
A home dedication is the greatest part of the Habitat for Humanity mission. says Executive Director Connie Hanner. Our families transition from living in substandard housing to a owning a home of their own. They appreciate their home because they have invested their own sweat into the project. They understand how responsibility and hard work manifests into a clean, safe place to live with a mortgage payment that they can afford.
