Inslee/Garretson Groundbreaking – April 27, 2023
Building Hope and Homes in Perth Amboy
With the help of Morris Habitat, Perth Amboy city officials and a dozen shovels of soil, two families are closer to realizing their dreams of affordable homeownership. The groundbreaking on April 27 represented Morris Habitat’s third in partnership with Perth Amboy’s Redevelopment Team for Neighborhood Enterprise and Revitalization (PARTNER).
“This groundbreaking is a belief in tomorrow for two families who will lay roots, build wealth and financial stability, and have shelter from all sorts of storms,” said Morris Habitat CEO, Blair Schleicher Wilson at the groundbreaking. “These homes represent the tireless work and collaboration of PARTNER, the City of Perth Amboy and its Housing Authority.”
Both families, current Perth Amboy residents, are excited about their partnership with Morris Habitat. They can’t wait to get started building and on the path to new affordable homeownership! “Right now I feel such happiness and joy,” said Hilton D. who will share one of the new homes with his wife, Mylacaryz, an Army Veteran, and their three children, ages 13, 9 and 4. “We’re looking forward to building our home with
our own hands.”
