Strengthening Community Spirit, Habitat works side by side with our partner families to build security and affordable homes.
We are currently building in Lake City, Tuesdays, Thursdays and some Saturdays. We are finishing the inside of the house at 416 N. Prairie Street. If you have ever wanted to know more about construction or have wanted to learn skills to complete those DIY projects, come join us! We will teach you how to use the proper tools, how to hang dry wall, cabinets and even to lay flooring. Weather you are an individual volunteer or have a group that would like to come out, we have numerous opportunities available! If your are available on weekdays, weeknights or Saturdays, and have an interest in construction, we would love to add you to our group of regular weekly volunteers!

Habitat for Humanity’s A Brush with Kindness (ABWK) is a nationwide program serving low income homeowners who struggle to maintain the exterior of their homes. This program enables Habitat to help existing homeowners continue to live independently and securely in their homes.
ABWK projects focus on exterior home repair services such as painting, minor repair work, roof work, and landscaping.
If selected you become a “Partner Family” in the Habitat organization, and agree to complete “Sweat Equity” (volunteer work with Habitat). We ask that all able-bodied residents work alongside volunteers. If physical labor is not possible, homeowners are able to serve as site host, work with Habitat office, or help with fundraising.
Projects are done at little cost to the homeowner through volunteers, donations, sweat equity, and no-interest loans.
Applicants will be assessed in regards to need, willingness to partner, and Habitat’s resources for ABWK projects at that time.
Our community needs more fact based information on the topic of Affordable Housing.
