The end of January marked the beginning of Habitat for Humanity of San Antonio’s spring build. On January 31, more than 150 supporters and volunteers came together to commence the construction of 11 affordable homes that will be completed by April in the Lenwood Heights Subdivision adjacent to Bethel United Methodist Church.
By end of year, Habitat will add these final completed homes to its 50 house goal for 2020. This event’s supporters included a variety of businesses, faith organizations and individuals in and around San Antonio.
The completion of these homes has been made possible by several Catholic parishes, including St. Luke Catholic Church/ Capital Group, St. Mark the Evangelist Church, Holy Trinity Church, and other parishes.
Habitat for Humanity of San Antonio is an ecumenical, Christian organization working with families in need to build decent and affordable homes without interest or profit. The organization was founded in 1976 as the first U.S. affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International. Habitat has built 1,128 homes since 1976 in San Antonio.
