The Mark Twain Habitat for Humanity has chosen its homeowner partner for 2019.

According to local Habitat president Brad Kurz, Shelby Snow and her daughter, Nevaeh Rudd, will be working alongside volunteers next year to build their new home on Rackliffe Street.

The home site is just a couple of blocks from Mark Twain Elementary School, where Nevaeh is a student.

The property was made available by nearby Genesis Bible Church.
To qualify to receive a new home from Mark Twain Habitat for Humanity, potential homeowners must demonstrate a need for affordable quality housing, be willing to complete 200 hours of sweat equity to the project and show an ability to make monthly mortgage payments when they purchase their Habitat house.

There will be an official ceremony to kick off the construction season next spring.
