Blue Water Habitat For Humanity Accepting Homeownership And Home Repair Applications

blue water habitatBlue Water Habitat for Humanity is hosting Homeowner Informational meetings on Thursday, January 29 at 6:00 p.m. and Saturday, January 31 at 10 a.m. Meetings are open to residents of St. Clair and Sanilac Counties and will be held at The Eleger G. Harvey Reinvestment Center: 3013 24th St, Port Huron. Those interested in applying for assistance through Blue Water Habitat for Humanity’s homeownership or home repair programs should attend one of the scheduled meetings. Applications are only available to those who attend a meeting. Blue Water Habitat for Humanity is a Christian housing ministry working with low income families in St. Clair and Sanilac Counties to purchase a home or to make necessary repairs on their existing home. Both programs are opened to residents of St. Clair and Sanilac Counties. Families accepted into both programs work with Blue Water Habitat to build, rehabilitate or repair houses; homeowner projects are sold at cost and financed using a zero interest loan. The home repair programs operate in a similar fashion. Families applying for the homeownership and repair programs must meet Blue Water Habitat’s threefold criteria: demonstrate a need; ability to pay; and willingness to partner. Qualified families for homeownership make between 30-60 percent of the Area Median Income (AMI); for home repairs the income guidelines are 30-80 percent of the AMI. Blue Water Habitat encourages those interested in applying to attend an informational meeting before discounting themselves from the program. Home Repair Programs include: A Brush With Kindness (ABWK) which focuses on minor exterior home repairs; Critical Home Repair (CHR) focuses on more in depth home repairs; and the Roof Repair Program (RRP) assists homeowners with replacing their roofs. Questions regarding our homeownership and home repair programs and the application process can contact Blue Water Habitat for Humanity’s Family Services department at 810-985-9080 ext. 204.

Volunteer Of The Year – Goes To Jeff Ruemenapp

jeff reumenappJeff Ruemenapp was practically born into  4H. His Ira Township family has been involved with 4H and the St Clair County 4H and Youth Fair for many years. Although Jeff no longer shows at the fair, he still is committed to the fair’s success.  This month at their annual convention, the Michigan Association of Fairs and Expositions named Jeff as their under 21 years old Volunteer of the Year. The majority of the state’s 86 local fairs are members  of MAFE. After being a unanimous nominee by the St Clair County Fair Board, a three person MAFE committee selected Jeff as this year’s award winner.  Jeff has transitioned very nicely from exhibitor to volunteer. Jeff has assisted his father, Rick Ruemenapp and aunt Chris Ruemenapp for years during fair setup. This year, however, Jeff took on a major role in the nightly events arena.  The area affectionately known as “The Crater” is host to events such as a rodeo, autocross, bump and run, and truck and tractor pulls. Each event requires it’s own unique setup. Jeff who is familiar with the operation of heavy equipment was able to be a point person in much of the setup. Some of the events require ongoing equipment support during the event such as the bump and run. Jeff was there each night to provide that support.  Jeff’s work continued long after the conclusion of the events. Clean up of the fair requires hundreds of volunteers. As the clean up moves from afternoon to early evening,  volunteer support declines. Jeff was one of a couple dozen volunteers that remained until the very end.  Jeff was recognized for his contributions at an awards banquet during the MAFE convention. He also received a Proclamation from the St Clair County Agricultural Society at their January meeting.
