    DINGMANS FERRY - Habitat for Humanity of Pike County recently completed its ninth Pike County house. Thanks to the generous donation of land and many hundreds of hours of time, the house in Pocono Mountain Lake Estates was completed in just six months. This last house was for a family with four children, one of whom is seriously handicapped. In making all aspects of the house handicap accessible, the parents will be able to better care for their 10-year-old daughter. Habitat for Humanity will be starting their tenth house this spring. The next two parcels of donated land are in Sunrise Lakes in Dingman Township. All homeowners of Habitat houses are expected to work on the project for at least 200 hours and be responsible to carry a mortgage to cover all material expenses, property taxes and community dues. Anyone interested in donating time or material is asked to call the Habitat office at 570-828-1623.
