House Builds

Elliot Street House Build!

The 207 Elliott Street house began construction in August 2009. With the help of hundred of Syracuse University student volunteers the house is complete. Date of completion was expected for April 2010 and is right on schedule. The house dedication will be on April 18, 2010 at 2pm. Everyone is welcomed to attend and celebrate.

Tully Street House Build is Complete!

Syracuse University/ESF broke ground on the 621 Tully Street house in mid-August and now, seven months later, the house is nearly complete. During the last seven months, hundreds of Syracuse University and ESF students have worked on the house. Clinton, Nolan, and Toby have served as our Interns at the site and have helped our Construction Manager, Paul Mabe, see the house through to its completion.

The house is 100% fully fund raised through Syracuse University-ESF Habitat for Humanity. Through such events and distinctions as the Shack-a-thon, Letter Writing Campaigns, Grants, and Restaurant sponsored nights we have raised the required $60,000 towards the house.

Tully Street House Build was completed in March. Sukema Cook and her son Nicholas have been chosen to receive the house and are set to move into the house next month. On Sunday, April 19th 2009 Habitat held a House Dedication, the final step in fulfilling one family's dream--to own a house. The dedication was attended by many community and university representatives.
