Habitat for Humanity of Randolph County is celebrating a significant milestone with the construction of its 50th home, the largest project the chapter has undertaken. This new five-bedroom house in Asheboro will soon become the home of Malcolm Purcell, Jacqua Marsh, and their eleven children, providing the much-needed space for their large family.

The family, who currently live in a three-bedroom house, have been actively involved in the building process through Habitat’s “sweat equity” program. This milestone not only highlights the dedication of the volunteers and the community but also underscores the profound impact that homeownership can have on a family’s life. The organization’s executive director has witnessed the transformative effects of these efforts over the years, seeing families thrive and children grow into successful adults. This 50th home symbolizes both a legacy of service and a new beginning for the Purcell-Marsh family.
