The Palm Beach County Quilters’ Guild and Habitat for Humanity of Palm Beach County, formed a partnership to acknowledge the accomplishment of families as they are presented the keys to their new homes. This partnership began at the end of 2012 and continues through today, with the presentation of a 20″ x 24″ quilted wall-hanging, personalized with the family’s name and house number, and presented at their home dedication ceremony.
These local, hard-working families have overcome huge obstacles and have taken courses on home finance and home maintenance and have contributed over 400 hours of “sweat-equity”, volunteering to help build their home and the homes of other partner families. They have also saved up for their closing costs as they take on a 30-year no-interest mortgage.
The Palm Beach County Quilters’ Guild seeks to celebrate partner families’ accomplishments in presenting these Welcome Home quilts.
