New Habitat for Humanity home dedicated

May 2018 Posted in Other, People

On May 16, Silverton grew by a family of two: Kim Betker and her 11-year-old son received the keys to a new home built over the past year by Habitat for Humanity. Kim herself put 500 hours of labor into the home and knows every inch of it.

Videographer Mike Turner met Kim in April and talked with her about her journey to becoming Silverton’s newest neighbor, and what it is like being selected by Habitat to become a homeowner. 

“Right now we’re in a housing crisis,” explained Wendy Patton, the executive director of Habitat’s North Willamette Valley branch. “Having a home means everything to family. It is the American dream, but that’s getting farther and farther away from all of us.” 

Habitat makes the dream come true. Watch it happen in a new video by following the link below– and if you see Kim around town, please give her a warm welcome.
