Two Habitat for Humanity partner families will soon have a home to call their own.

The selected families who will be moving into the homes once they have put in 500 hours on the build and secure the mortgage are Greg and Tony Pascal, children Alex, Kaydence, and Shyanne, and Christine Knudtson and her two children, Skylar and McKenzie.

Although work has began, the organization is still looking for help.

"We figure we need in total about $270,000 to complete this project," explains co-chair Ivan Burhler, "We are at about $180,000. So another $80,000 in materials and donations of other sorts would be appreciated."

The families were unveiled for the first time at a sod turning ceremony Thursday held at the location of the homes at 521 2nd Street.

A big player in the build was the provincial government who offered up a large portion of the funding. Humboldt MLA Donna Harpauer was the minister responsible when they government first start providing funds to Habitat.

"Habitat is a great organization," says MLA Harpauer, "Each and every year the province of Saskatchewan has put money into Habitat, since that very first announcement, and for this particular project there will be $100,000."

They group is also looking for volunteer's to help with the build. Buehler added that not only do they need help with the actual construction. The two families selected have children who will need to be babysat while they put their hours in on the build.
