Habitat for Humanity helps a local family this holiday season


One St. George family has been given an opportunity that doesn’t come around too often. The Hirschi family is the lucky owner of the 17th Habitat for Humanity home in southern Utah.

Several committees weighed the options of the different families who applied for the house, and after several weeks found the Hirschi family to be the best fit based on their willingness to participate in partnering with Habitat for Humanity and their family needs.

Mother and new home owner Leberdie Hirschi has a neuro-muscular disease, creating mobile limitations in their current split level apartment.

Even though their children have good friends and they like their neighbors, the Hirschis feel that their old location isn’t the best suited for a family. Now their three kids will be able to have lasting memories in a home of their own.
