Eureka! Picture this: Each day, I'd eagerly open my mailbox, my virtual gateway to hope, searching for that elusive, game-changing message. The emotional rollercoaster was dizzying—the anticipation that could rival the most thrilling suspense, the pangs of disappointment, the heart-pounding anxiety, and the exasperating frustration. But then, like a crescendo in a symphony, it happened—THE PERMIT arrived, a beacon of possibility, and suddenly, our dreams were tangible, our mission unstoppable.

This solitary piece of paper is not just a permit; it's the golden key to our journey's next chapter. It unlocks the doors to our true passion, the one thing that binds us all together—building. Building is not merely a task or just our mission; it's a gateway to crafting brighter futures for others.

But here's the thrilling twist: while we held our breath for this pivotal moment, we didn't stand idle. We poured our efforts into our other projects. We joined forces with the visionary JW Pedersen Architects, laying the groundwork for not just one but three impactful properties. A partnership agreement with West Cape May was signed, and will culminate in the construction of two single-family homes. The demolition of the remains of an abandoned building are complete to set the stage for a new home on Wildwood Avenue, as well as pursuing our vision of single-story duplex housing on Sumner Avenue, all in Middle Township.

And as if this symphony of achievements weren't enough, we recently marked a triumphant victory (albeit quietly at the homeowner’s request): one of our Habitat homeowners made their final mortgage payment. That journey continues, with another homeowner set to complete their mortgage this very month.

Stay tuned for more buzz on the Habitat Cape May horizon!
