The Yates and Porter families' homes were dedicated on January 26, 2017. Ivey Hall, MAHFH Executive Director opened the event by thanking all who attended including its donors, campaign volunteers and supporters. Ivey Hall assisted MAHFH Board President, Dr. Linda Brennan in the presentation of the Bible and keys to the Porter, Yates and Spradley families.

Guests totaling 70 enjoyed a nice meal provided by the Gray Hwy. Walmart Deli.
