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.
Gayla Fullerton, incoming Habitat board chair, and Steven Leggett, executive director, accept a $1,000 check from the Walmart store on highway 351 from Ernie Koon, the store’s manager. The check presentation was part of the launch of Walmart’s new online shopping service. Walmart has worked with Habitat in the past, and are discussing ways we can partner with them on future activities. In fact, our most recent homeowner, Jamacia Green, has been a department manager at the Walmart on the south side of Abilene.
