Habitat for Humanity of Anderson County is selling its building in Grove Center, and officials said they want to move into a more economical facility.
“We have a 70-year-old building, and the cost to maintain the property hinders us in fulfilling the Habitat mission,” the nonprofit organization’s board of directors said in a statement. “Habitat for Humanity International recommends not owning real estate, with the exception of properties on which to build houses.”
The board said many customers have been concerned because they have seen the “For Sale” sign on the Habitat ReStore and office in Grove Center.
“We are not going out of business!” the board said.
The Habitat mission is to build and rehabilitate good, reasonably priced homes that low-income families can afford to buy.
“Therefore, the board of directors of Habitat for Humanity of Anderson County has decided to sell our building in Grove Center,” the statement said. “HFHAC is looking to move into a more economical facility.”
The board also thanked their supporters and said Habitat officials were very thankful for the community’s generosity.
