The Ketchams will be moving into our 50th Habitat home!  

We had a wonderful time celebrating the completion of our 50th home at the Habitat Barn on March 9th.
Check the Habitat for Humanity of the San Juans Facebook page for photos from the sparklers wishing ceremony!  It was such a touching and beautiful evening.  We couldn’t be more excited for the Ketchams.

Click here to get to know the Ketcham family through a short video interview.  Read their story below…

David and Kay Ketcham adopted their two grandchildren, and raise them full time. The family is living in a travel trailer in a trailer park here in Montrose. They were facing homelessness due to losing their home in the economic crash, and purchased the travel trailer in hopes to avoid becoming homeless. The family has struggled with the cost of living in a travel trailer, as it is not energy efficient, especially in the winter. The cost of living far exceeds their income.

“We are so excited to have been chosen for a Habitat home, we can now give our grandchildren a safe and warm place to live. We often drive by the Habitat homes, showing the children what our future home is going to look like, and what it is going to be like being part of a community.  We are very excited to work on our home, and to start a new chapter of life for our little family. We are truly grateful for Habitat for Humanity and everyone involved.  We are truly blessed.”
