On a bright sunny day, Nov. 30, two families' lives were forever changed. Habitat for Humanity of Northern Virginiaâ€™s Glenwood Mews town homes were dedicated to the Yassin and Baghdad families. The Baghdads and Yassins received the keys to their new homes after working for months to build them alongside volunteers.
The dedication started with an opening prayer given by Dr. Carl A Rush, Pastor of Bush Hill Presbyterian Church. A presentation was given to the sponsors of the build and Hayden Kwast and Karen Warkentien, House Leader presented the keys to the homeowners.
Habitat for Humanity of Northern Virginia has been working in the community for over 15 years and has built 53 homes. The affiliate is currently constructing a 120-unit condominium in Fairfax.
