Habitat for Humanity dedicated five more homes June 2014 with a prayer that God make homes of those houses.

The prayer has already been answered.

These five new homes bring the number of homes and families for the local Habitat affiliate to 50 — 48 new homes and two rehabs — and 150 children with a place to call home.

Habitat’s partner families go through a long and exhaustive selection process. After they’re selected, each family member — even the children — works hundreds of hours on their new home building sweat equity. When that’s all done, they buy the homes with zero percent interest loans.
