A Happy Home for the Wade Family

An opportunity knocked, Midcoast Habitat answered the call and now Rachel Wade and her son, Ian have a wonderful place to call home. Last November, the Maple Leaf modular house was donated to Midcoast Habitat by Sally Wood of Pennsylvania. We were able to relocate the house to the last lot at Deer Run Rd in Thomaston and begin the interior rehab. “The house was solidly constructed and well suited for the neighborhood of existing homes built by Midcoast Habitat. A perfect fit.” stated Tia Anderson, Executive Director of Midcoast Habitat.
Rachel has worked with Midcoast Habitat for the past four years through her job at Lowe’s. She has contributed countless hours to the construction of the other Habitat homes and projects. Her hard work, dedication and need for a safe, affordable home made her and Ian the perfect candidates for this house. Initially hesitant to apply, Rachel realized the benefit and impact this opportunity would have on her life and Ian’s future. She became excited about the prospect, applied and was accepted as a Habitat partner family. Sharing the news with Ian, brought tears to her eyes and ours. This project, family and home epitomize the Habitat program.
At the dedication,  family, friends, co-workers and Midcoast Habitat volunteers filled the house, thrilled to see Rachel and Ian be the recipients of this home. The mission of Habitat came full circle with this partnership. Rachel and Ian are a wonderful partner family, joining a neighborhood of other wonderful Habitat families. The future is bright thanks to the generosity of many. We welcome the Wade Family to our Midcoast Habitat Family.
Thanks to all who support and participate Midcoast Habitat!
