Guam - The Habitat for Humanity of Guam announced the completion of its twenty-first house by holding a dedication today in Yigo. Glenn and Sue Ann Gogo and their five children are the latest partner family of habitat's Guam affiliate. The Gogo family was joined by the volunteers and supporters who have helped build the house for the last nine months.

Habitat for Humanity Board of Directors President Shane Intihar said, "This is part of our larger goal in providing home ownership to those who otherwise aren't able to afford a home with the overall policy of creating homeowners on Guam. In doing so really improves the community in a way that people who rent homes probably won't be contributing in the same way."

The Habitat for Humanity of Guam was established in 1996 by a group of local residents. The organization plans to break ground on its 22nd house in April.
