DeKalb County has another homeowner!

Jamie Nokes Greco and her family celebrated the completion of their home on Sunday afternoon, built in partnership with Habitat for Humanity of DeKalb County. The home is located at 202 Hayes Street in Smithville.

Iain Swisher, Pastor from First Assembly of God, led a prayer during the dedication ceremony and Gary Johnson, Construction Coordinator, led a responsive reading. Jamie expressed her deep appreciation for all the individuals, churches, businesses and organizations who worked on the house.

“All Glory to God. I am just thankful for the Blessing. I know its something He has bestowed upon me. I am thankful for all the volunteers and for the Habitat organization. They are changing people’s lives and I am thankful I get to be one of those people. I am extremely blessed,” Jamie told WJLE during the ground breaking ceremony in February, 2018.

This home is the sixth for a Habitat partner family in DeKalb County

Habitat’s work in DeKalb continues! This Friday, Oct. 18, the 16th Annual Habitat for Humanity Chili Cook-off will be held from 10:30a.m.-1 p.m. on the Courthouse Lawn. Funds raised will help to continue building in DeKalb County.
