Rehab is underway at the house located at 1208 Cadillac Drive West in Cedar Crest subdivision. The previous owner passed away in Spring 2017 and his children donated the house to Habitat Kokomo. After some painting, remodeling of the bathrooms and a few other things, the house will be home to Habitat Partner Family James & Heather DeWitt and their two sons.
