Jan 14, 2017 – West Bend WI – Habitat for Humanity dedicated its latest house to the Komp family, amid many of the dedicated volunteers who have helped with the building.
In addition to the home, the Komp family received a check for $1,085.94, which was raised by the West Bend East National Honors Society through a holiday loose-coin drive.
The family was also each gifted with a quilt from Our Savior’s Lutheran Church, and a prayer Afghan from St. Luke’s Lutheran Church of Slinger.
Scott Korn, the lead site supervisor, feels the Komp’s new home marks a positive turning point for the family.
“It’s a start for them, and another chapter of their life,” Korn said. “You have a secure home, you have some place you can put your roots down. It’s wonderful.”
