  • On October 7th, 2013, we celebrated World Habitat Day! With the help from the students of Cove United Methodist Church, Bridge Street Town Centre and Railroad Bazaar, we hosted a "Flash Framing Mob"! In a matter of minutes, the students of Cove Church built a frame for a house we will be building this Fall. We wanted to show the public that with a little help and the materials, together we can build new, safe and reliable homes for our community!
  • As of January 2013, we have met our goal of completing the renovations of 31 homes purchased through our Neighborhood Stabilization Program. We are thrilled to have been a part of this program that facilitated the growth of our Mission. We thank all of the volunteers who worked with us on these homes!

 

 

 

  • We introduce to you our two AmeriCorps workers who joined our office in the Fall. Barnes Heyward (Huntsville, AL) and Mary Hodge (Dansville, New York) started with us in September and will continue to work with our construction management as Construction Crew Leaders through July. As AmeriCorps Nationals, Barnes and Mary accepted service positions to assist HFHMC as we work toward our goal to provide safe, affordable housing within our community.

 

 

  • Each year our affiliate hosts teams of college students from across the country to work with us here in Huntsville. These are students taking their Spring Break to spend time partnering with our community to build homes for those in need. Students arrive on Sunday and “camp out” for the week in sleeping bags on the floors of our local churches. They work through the week side by side with volunteers from our community, with our partner families and participate in an experience they will remember for a lifetime. This year we will welcome more than 40 students from four  Midwestern colleges—University of Chicago, University of Illinois at Urbana, North Central College and Michigan State, who will be returning for the third year in a row. We are blessed to have so many students willing to spend their spring break here in Madison County. For further information about the Habitat for Humanity Collegiate Challenge visit their website.
