GBA Dedicates its Ninth Habit for Humanity House
On March 4th, GBA members gathered at 1310 Picard St. in Greensboro to unveil the finished product of its ninth Habitat for Humanity home. Amongst GBA members were Habitat for Humanity staff, volunteers, and members of the community who shared in the celebration of David Sosa-Ramos and Martha “Patty” Sanchez, Greensboro’s newest homeowners.
In 2011, Mr. Sosa-Ramos was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. Unable to navigate his wheelchair through the doorways of his previous residence, he faced exceptional challenges performing his day-to-day tasks—some things we oftentimes take for granted. Since September of last year, our members have worked diligently to complete the GBA’s first ADA compliant home so that Mr. Sosa-Ramos and his family can live comfortably every day.
Habitat for Humanity committee chair, Bill Cooke, performed the dedication to David, Martha, and their two grandchildren, and special remarks to the family followed.
Each member of the family addressed the membership and expressed their true gratitude for the selflessness of our members, nothing that they “would never forget this moment.”
Thank you to all of the GBA members who dedicated their time to the service of others on this project. Furthermore, the committee and membership are especially grateful for the remarkable leadership of Bill Cooke which has supported this program for many years.
