raise the roof: habitat ministry makes dreams come true
A crew of eager St. Ann’s’ volunteers will descend upon a work site this fall to help realize a dream. They will work tirelessly to build a home – their 51st – to give a family a place to live in dignity and safety.
“Watching a pile of two-by- fours become walls, then rooms and finally a finished house in just nine weeks is awesome,” said Habitat for Humanity ministry leader Jo Anne Green.
The ministry likes to say it provides a “hand up, not a handout” because the new homeowner is required to put in at least 300 hours of work on their own house as well as another’s.
“Working side by side with the homeowners creates a bond and fellowship that leaves a concrete sense of accomplishment and mission for the volunteer,” Green said.
St. Ann’s Habitat ministry works in coalition with five other area Catholic churches to raise the $90,000 needed to buy land, materials and pay the necessary tradespeople. Through their fundraisers of Christmas candy sales, the January chili cookoff and the Sunday brunch event, Green and her crew hope to raise their share of the bill: $25,000.
