Habitat for Humanity of Denton County celebrated a significant milestone on April 19th, 2024, with the groundbreaking ceremony for the historic Habitat Village project. The event marked the commencement of construction on an 8-acre lot in the southeast area of Denton, destined to be transformed into a vibrant community comprising 35 homes.

Key figures from the local community joined in the festivities, including Habitat for Humanity of Denton County Board President Brian Strohl, Representative Richard Hayes, Denton City Council Member Vicki Byrd, Sheriff Murphree, and Denton Mayor Hudspeth. Their presence underscored the importance of this initiative in addressing housing needs and fostering community development.

The groundbreaking ceremony was attended by community members who have steadfastly supported Habitat for Humanity of Denton County throughout its journey. Among the celebration, guests and supporters were engaged in various activities, fostering a sense of camaraderie and shared purpose.

Attendees were treated to food by El Cucuy Burritos, generously provided by Dan Gillean from Gillean’s Brothers Roofing LLC, exemplifying the unwavering support of local businesses in our mission. Additionally, we extend our heartfelt gratitude to Gohlke Pools for graciously offering their space for the event and for their unwavering support throughout this endeavor.

With construction set to begin this year, the community eagerly anticipates the transformation of this 8-acre lot into a thriving neighborhood where families can build brighter futures.
