Ground broken on new Habitat home in Goshen

Goshen Mayor Jeremy Stutsman, right, addresses those attending the Tuesday groundbreaking for a new Habitat for Humanity of Elkhart County house. The house will be located along West Wilden Avenue in Goshen. The 1,470-square-foot house will be constructed for Jeremy and Cheryl Barnes. The Barnes were accepted into Habitat’s homeownership program in December of 2020. Since that time they each have worked on completing 250 sweat equity hours and saving for their down payment. The Barnes house will be the first two-story home to be built by Habitat for Humanity of Elkhart County. The Builders Association of Elkhart County is co-sponsoring the house.
