Tara Hoke will be living in her new home at 25 N. Broad St. by Thanksgiving thanks to Habitat for Humanity of Franklin County.


Work will begin in April on the three-bedroom, one-and-a-half bathroom, 1,200-square-foot rancher. It will include the sweat equity of Hoke, her family and friends and volunteers from the community. Thrivent Financial is providing $67,500 — half the cost of the project — and Hoke will pay a zero interest mortgage for the remainder.


This is the 37th Habitat for Humanity home in Franklin County and the fifth in Waynesboro, according to Mark Story, executive director.
