Law Enforcement Agencies Build Affordable Home with Habitat on 9/11
During 9/11, more than 80 officers from 5 departments across York County will measure, cut, nail and assemble walls to build an affordable home in partnership with a Habitat for Humanity homebuyer. The 9/11 Build Week will raise the walls of a 4 bedroom, 2 bath home for a single mom and her 3 children. Habitat homebuyers pay an affordable mortgage and put in 250 hours of sweat equity alongside other Habitat volunteers. Studies have revealed that children moving into a Habitat home had improved school participation, performance and attendance. Additionally, an affordable home provides the financial stability so that food, clothing and other essential needs of the children are met. We encourage you to follow the example of these law enforcement officers and be the difference children in our community need. Advocate, donate and/or volunteer with Habitat for Humanity and help build a place called home where children can grow and thrive.
