Help Build the 5th BIA Habitat Home THIS Saturday

The walls are up and the 5th BIA Habitat Home is now officially under construction.

Wall Raising 1

Located on S. Fifth Street in Columbus, the home is being built using 60-70% volunteer labor. The prospective homeowners, a great family with four daughters, has helped to build other homes with Habitat and is now excitedly working on their own home.

Join us May 5 as we work on the BIA Habitat home. We most likely will be working on siding, interior finishes and punch out items.

You can participate individually or with a group from your office.  All skill levels are welcome.  Work days are from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm. Volunteers need to be age 16 or older. Click the link below for more details.
