Say “Hi” to the Mohamed/Ahmed Family, our Partner Family for 715 Willow Street in Faribault!

The building has already begun at 715 Willow Street for this family!  This is the largest family Habitat has built with in Rice County.  The family of 11 will have a 6 bedroom home and will be built to accommodate the special needs of their 14 year old daughter who is in a wheelchair.  You might recall reading about Lul, the daughter.  She was walking to school one day and was hit by a driver, throwing her 30 feet.  You can read more here…
