Habitat for Humanity of Bucks County held a groundbreaking ceremony for three new Habitat homes in Croydon on Aug. 9.

The property, once the site of the former St. Thomas Aquinas School, is being transformed from a deteriorating vacant building into affordable homes that offer a path to a brighter future for deserving families.

“Certainly, this is a bittersweet time for the families of St. Thomas Aquinas Parish” said Rev. David Fernandes, the pastor of St. Thomas Aquinas parish.

“It is sweet, in that from this property, three new homes will be raised to serve the greater good, making quality, affordable homes available in our community. We are grateful to be part of this initiative and to partner with Habitat for Humanity.”

Early supporters of the project include the County of Bucks, the Redevelopment Authority of the County of Bucks, Blue Rock Construction, Parx Casino, Penn Community Bank, Pulte Group, Woodside Church, and William Penn Bank.

Additionally, this project received partial funding through a grant from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Commonwealth Financing Authority, reflecting the state’s commitment to improving housing accessibility for its citizens. This initiative was spearheaded by Representative Tina Davis, former Senator Robert “Tommy” Tomlinson, and Senator Steve Santarsiero.
