McKinney, Texas - Habitat for Humanity of Collin County, in partnership with The City of McKinney and McKinney Community Development Corporation (MCDC), is pleased to announce that construction begins on our 100th Habitat home in McKinney on June 17 at 11 a.m. at 913 Hamilton St. Our keynote speaker, Mayor George Fuller, will kick off this celebration, present a proclamation marking this milestone, and welcome the McFarland-Gayle family to the City of McKinney. We also welcome City Councilmen Patrick Cloutier and Charlie Phillips for their support of this historical event and MCDC Board Chair Angela Richardson-Woods’ word on the importance of affordable options for McKinney residents.
“One of MCDC’s strategic priorities is to support housing options and projects that include low-income, affordable options for residents in McKinney. MCDC has a long-standing partnership with Habitat for Humanity of Collin County and has invested more than $4 million in Habitat’s housing projects, individual homes, and neighborhood revitalization projects.” -- Angela Richardson-Woods, Board Chair, McKinney Community Development Corporation
This 100th Habitat home is being built for Marion McFarland, a proud 8-year Navy veteran who, after many years struggling with housing insecurity, will finally call McKinney home.
“We have been displaced and struggling to stay together for many years now. Having something to call our own is going to feel great. My kids have been waiting since childhood for a house of their own. Never give up. Sometimes you may get discouraged, but don’t let it get you down.” – Marion McFarland
