Roane County Habitat for Humanity recently dedicated its 34th house built in Roane County.
Owner Jesse Hall, left, along with his sister, Ruby, and mother, Carrie, are living in the home they and dozens of volunteers helped build.
“Their new home, located on Hope Circle in Kingston, is a thoroughly modern, efficient, and sturdy design that will provide them many years of service,” said Todd Fisher, Roane County Habitat for Humanity president.

The Roane County News had one of its more humanitarian globetrotting trips when it accompanied the Ochs family to Ghana, Africa.
