Habitat for Humanity and Publix dedicate home in Nicholtown

Updated: May 19, 2023

Through sustainable and transformative Development, Habitat for Humanity Greenville County (HFHGG) is steadfast in bringing “people together to build homes, communities, and hope.” Central to this commitment is to build more neighborhoods like Heritage Hills in Nicholtown.

As part of Habitat Greenville’s growth plan, Nicholtown Community Development, Habitat at Heritage Hills, received an $800,000 investment in infrastructure, the foundation for 29 new family homes totaling $1.5 million in funding. This project is part of a Habitat growth plan that engages community partners to meet the rapidly growing need for affordable housing in our County.

On Thursday, May 18, 2023 1t 4 p.m. Habitat of Greenville, community leaders and build partner Publix will celebrate the dedication of the Lloyd Family home.

“Owning a home has been a 6-year goal. As a single parent, I had to make adjustments, and that took a lot of pride to ask for help," said Shaniqua Lloyd, mother of three children. “Habitat is more than just a word: it is a community, it is a family connected. We all are one. We are not different from each other, and we all want the same thing, to be happy and have a community that you can call family.”

Publix donated $80,000 for this build, and Shaniqua Lloyd gave 200 hours of sweaty equity to conclude her Habitat journey to homeownership.

Nicholtown Community new homes will cover a five-acre parcel located near Downtown Greenville. The plan ultimately provides what the community and families need:

· Access to affordable, well-constructed housing

· Financial stability

· Self-sufficiency and overall well-being
