Habitat building Faith House

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Saturday was the first volunteer day for Habitat for Humanity’s new home-building project along Oak Street Extension in Youngstown.

Several members of our news team were out there helping out. One of the main projects was helping to seal the outside of the basement walls with tar.

Habitat is celebrating its 25th anniversary in the Valley with this home and is doing something special. It’s been dubbed the “Faith House,” and Habitat is looking to partner with 25 different churches to help finish it.

“You can get involved in a lot of different way. A lot of churches are able to give financial contributions, but groups can also get involved by donating food, or labor, or helping out in our restore,” said Program Coordinator Colin Penney.

This home will be going to a mother, her fiancé and her three young kids.

It should be ready by Christmas.
