Bringing People Together to Build HOMES, COMMUNITIES, AND HOPE
Abilene Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit, nondenominational Christian housing ministry that invites people of all backgrounds, races, and religions to build together in partnership with local families to eliminate substandard housing from the city of Abilene. Thanks to the countless hours of service contributed by committed volunteers and the monetary and material donations provided by the Abilene community, 162 homes have been built or renovated to provide simple, decent shelter for local families. Habitat builds homes in partnership with hardworking, low-income families and the community. The homes are sold at no profit with zero-percent interest mortgages to partnering families, whom we have prepared to be successful homeowners.
Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.
STATE FARM DONATES $5,000 TO HABITAT WOMEN BUILD PROJECT
State Farm, represented by local agents Sam Garcia, Glynn Walker and Risha Sanders, present a $5,000 check to Abilene Habitat for our upcoming Women Build project. Diana Perez, holding the check, will be the homeowner. Steven Leggett, Habitat executive, stands next to Diana. Family Services Coordinator Michelle Horling and Construction Superintendent Aaron Bryant are also pictured. Habitat is actively recruiting women, and businesses owned and/or run by women, to participate in the project which should break ground within a month.
Thursday March 15, 2018 has been an Alpha and Omega sort of day. We had Diana Perez (shown with construction superintendent Aaron Bryant) come in to discuss the plans for her new house which we will be starting in the next few weeks.
Then, before noon, homeowner Carolyn Snell-Wellborn (shown with finance manager Anita Tatum) came in to pay off the note on her house. They are shown shredding a copy of the mortgage. Together with the house blessings after a closing, these are the events that give us the most joy and express the mission of our ministry: ‘ Put God’s love into action by involving people in building homes, communities and hope.
