Monday morning, Tran-sylvania Habitat for Humanity broke ground for the 63rd home in Transyl-vania County and the 36th home in the City of Brevard. This home will be constructed thanks in part to the SECU Habitat Challenge Initiative, a partnership to expand affordable housing by building or renovating one new Habitat home in all 100 counties in North Carolina.

The SECU Foundation will be investing $10 million in this project, providing a major boost to Habitat supporters and volunteers by increasing their capacity to help additional families in many areas of North Carolina without current Habitat services.

Eric Edwards will be the new homeowner for this house on Palmer Street.

Carson Griffin, a former Advisory Board member at the Brevard branch of SECU, said, "Our partnership with Habitat for Humanity of North Carolina and partnering nonprofits truly reflect the basic principles and cooperative spirit on which the SECU Foundation and Habitat were established, which is people helping people."
