Habitat's Elimination Side!

Habitat's MISSION is multi-facited to be sure, building hope building houses for families in need of safe, decent and affordable shelter. But often before the CONstruction of a new house can begin, the DEstruction of an unsafe, substandard one must take place. Workers with B & B Excavating Company recently accomplished that task for Habitat at 608 Letcher Street,
ELIMINATING a substandard house so that a new one can be built in its place. Habitat is grateful for the voluntary contribution of the building lot on Letcher Street from David and Dana O'Nan. Their generosity makes Habitat's work possible.

Work on the Shulisa Barrett family's new home of will begin within a few days--the 46th Henderson County family to receive a Habitat for Humanity house since 1990. Habitat's dedicated volunteer "Thursday Crew," led by Fred Lauver, will be engaged in building this house, the third new house to be started within the past few weeks.
