On September 28, 2019 our team participated in the Habitat Memphis - 2019 Fall Build. The 2019 build consisted of nine new homes in the Castalia Heights neighborhood south of the Cooper-Young district. We were thrilled to work with new homeowner, Miriam, on one of the nine new homes. Our particular work consisted of installing windows, some siding, and tidying up some of the framing braces inside the home.
Through this process we were also excited to learn more about Habitat Memphis.
- Habitat Memphis is now the largest local chapter of Habitat for Humanity in the United States
- Habitat has extensive application and training procedures for future homeowners, including ongoing education. See more at this link: https://www.memphishabitat.com/homeownership
- We plan on participating again this year (Fall 2020) and will likely have opportunities to get involved! Please let us know if you would be interested in getting out to the build site.
