    OCEAN COUNTY - Ocean County Vocational Technical School (OCVTS) and Northern Ocean Habitat for Humanity held a Groundbreaking Ceremony for a second new home construction in Berkeley Township. Through a unique partnership with Northern Ocean Habitat for Humanity, OCVTS developed the New Home Construction Program last year . This 10-month accelerated construction trades training program for adult students provides real-world experience and hands-on skills. The students, under rigorous supervision, will build a 2-story house for a family selected by Northern Ocean Habitat for Humanity. This building site is located next to the home which was completed by OCVTS students last year.

    OCVTS New Home Construction students, the selected Habitat family and local officials celebrate the groundbreaking for the new construction.

    The Groundbreaking Ceremony is a celebration to recognize the selected Habitat family who will ultimately live in the home; to thank the many donors who have contributed to the construction project as well as funding the development of the New Home Construction Program and to unite individuals, organizations and the community as Northern Ocean Habitat for Humanity continues its mission.

    Ocean County Freeholder Director Joseph Vicari and Berkeley Township Mayor Carmen Amato presented both Northern Ocean Habitat for Humanity and Ocean County Vocational Technical School with Awards of Recognition for their continued success.

    Frank Folinus, Director of Adult Education at OCVTS commented, "Today marks the beginning of another exciting year. This foundation represents not only the beginning of a new life for the selected family but also the foundation of new careers and livelihoods for OCVTS students."
