Worcester Habitat for Humanity chapter to dedicate first Veterans Build home today


By Bill Thomas

A multifaceted effort to provide housing for a deserving veteran’s family is coming together with a Feb. 12 Habitat for Humanity dedication ceremony.
The Habitat for Humanity MetroWest/Greater Worcester project will welcome the Ewings family into their home at 79 Kendig St., off College Street. The ceremony marks the first Veterans Build for the local home-providing organization. The four-bedroom, single-family home was made possible in part by the generosity of an anonymous donor, who contributed in honor of Pope Francis. A former community meeting hall on College Hill, the building and land was donated by the College Hill Civic Association.
Habitat selected Marc and Sophie Ewings as their first Veterans Build Partner Family for the home. Marc is a Marine Corps veteran and is an administrative director for Advocates, running six residences for the Framingham nonprofit serving people with disabilities. Sophie has put her professional massage therapy practice on hold to focus on the daily therapy needs of their three sons, ages 5, 7 and 9, who have been diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder.

“It’s been a whirlwind of emotions,” said Marc Ewings. “My wife had applied; I didn’t expect to be picked. It’s funny how it started. A different family was chosen, but they dropped out. We were the second choice. We were actually ecstatic, speechless. The house is a model Mass. Electric energy hub. We’re very elated.”
