SCHENECTADY, N.Y. – A dedication ceremony was held Sunday after the completion of a Habitat for Humanity home built for a family with a special needs child.
Just one year ago, Heather Walker, mother of two and an occupational Therapy assistant in the Schenectady School District was accepted into the Habitat homeowner program.
"Having a special needs child with autism spectrum creates many challenges on a day-to-day basis. My son needs the peace and security of a forever home we can call our own. I know it will make all the difference in the world to our family. I will be forever grateful for Schenectady Habitat for making our dream of home ownership real," said Walker.
The rehab was designated a Habitat Women Build, which does not exclude men, but includes and empowers women to take part.
The Dedication Ceremony celebration was held on Sunday at 2 p.m. at the home on 918 Michigan Ave. The event was open to the public.
