Freeland home dedication planned for Crouch family

Habitat for Humanity of Island County will host a home dedication in Freeland for Liz and Bruce Crouch this weekend.

The event is a formal passing of the keys to the Crouches, who are the new owners of the 38th Habitat-built home on Whidbey Island — the 14th on the South End.

Habitat for Humanity International partners with low-income families to build safe and affordable houses.

Families apply through the non-profit group and those chosen receive financial training, homeownership classes and are required to put in 500 sweat-equity hours into building their home.
