There's No Place Like Home
The Gainesville Community Development Housing Division is teaming
up with the Construction Technology Department at Gainesville High
School to re-build a home for one Gainesville family. Gainesville
Housing Coordinator, Theresa Dyer, said the project is part of the city’s
Community Home Investment Program (CHIP) through the Georgia
Department of Community Affairs. “We received an application for
home rehabilitation assistance and later determined it would be more
cost effective to rebuild the home. This is the first time we’ve used
CHIP funding for this kind of project. We are very excited to be part of
a project like this and to work with the students from Gainesville High
School,” Dyer said.
Demolition on the home at 825 Washington Street began yesterday.
The entire project is expected to take about six months.
