Habitat for Humanity in Whatcom County will dedicate its latest rehabilitation project Sunday, Sept. 18, in Sumas.

The agency’s fourth rehabilitation project since 1988 will provide a new home for Maria Elena and Jorge Gutierrez of Everson, who have lived with their family of five in a 680-square-foot apartment for the past 14 years. Jorge is a field worker and Maria Elena is a stay-at-home mom. The family has contributed more than the minimum 500 hours of sweat equity to the project, Habitat officials said.

The home dedication will be at 4 p.m. Sunday at 211 Front St. in Sumas. The public is invited to attend.
