Give to the Max Day 2022
Last month Itasca County Habitat for Humanity and the Rounsville Family broke ground on a handicap assessable home. This marks the 48th home in Itasca County and the 57th family that will partner with Habitat to have a place to call home.
Kayley and Aubrey Rounsville both grew up and attended school in the Itasca area. They have three children: Jay (six years old), Lincoln (four), and Peyton (one).
Itasca County Habitat for Humanity will be building a one-level three-bedroom home that will include wide hallways and doorways to accommodate Lincoln’s wheelchair, as well as a roll-in shower. Aubrey was also in a head-on collision with a semi-truck six years ago, which resulted in the loss of his leg which makes this house a huge need for his independence. The Rounsville family’s home will also have a garage with sidewalks connecting the house for seamless transitions from the car along with sidewalks to the road to assist in easy transition from the house to the bus for Lincoln to attend school. The home’s open floor plan will make it easy for the family to spend time together. When asked what having a Habitat home that meets their family’s needs would mean to them, Aubrey and Kayley stated, “a safe one-level home that will allow enough room for Lincoln's needs will be amazing. Being close to the hospital in a quiet neighborhood where our boys can grow up is a dream come true.”
Currently, we are raising funds to help this family raise the walls on their new home. Help us reach our goal of $5000 for the Rounsville Family home.
