Habitat for Humanity, 11/18

St. Frances Cabrini Parish

 

Habitat for Humanity is an organization that’s been around for many years. When they started, the numbers of houses were small. There were volunteer experts, mostly retired contractors, who ran the site and gently (most of the time) gave us advice on how to build a house. Now it’s a tremendous organization.

The “experts” are paid contractors who know very well what they’re doing and have been trained to work with people who have no building experience. They are building many houses world-wide. Currently, they are building 30 houses in Fremont for homeless vets. The build is now beginning the hammers and nails stage, but you never know what you will be asked to do.

The people are great to work with, and it’s for a tremendous cause. The future owners put in a minimum of 500 hours in “sweat work” to help, and Habitat for Humanity gets first dibs if they decide to sell in the future.

Please come and help us build. The next build day for SFC is November 18, Saturday. My cell phone is (408) 781-4603. Email is phaley84@gmail.com
