Habitat for Humanity Helps Area Family Find a New Home in Fairmont

Habitat for Humanity of Martin and Faribault County has helped a family find a new home in Fairmont.


For the past few years, the organization has been working with the Alvara Rivera family, who have been living in Minnesota and have more recently, made the decision to stay rather than moving back home to Texas.


The property in Fairmont, came from someone they worked wit hon a previous house 5 years ago.  It was previously classified as a rental property, but because of a grant, Habitat for Humanity was able to get the house and begin the work.


The house features artwork done by both Lupita Rivera and a family friend.  On Sunday, community members and volunteers gathers to help welcome the Rivera family to their new home.
