“A home dedication ceremony is a special time for HabiJax to recognize each new homeowner who has worked hard to accomplish their goal of homeownership,” said Mary Kay O’Rourke, president and CEO of HabiJax. “We invite all to attend to celebrate our newest homeowners and the many dedicated volunteers and sponsors who assist in making our builds possible.”
