Habitat for Humanity
Building a new home... If you try to buy a house and the bank says no because you do not earn enough money, then maybe you can buy a Habitat house.  Fill out an application and prove you need help but you have to pay for the Habitat house.  The houses are not big or fancy and you must work 300 hours to help build the house.  It's not easy. Please read below for more information.

Habitat for Humanity is a volunteer nonprofit Christian housing ministry.  They help low-income families become homeowners.  The houses are not free.  Families have to sign a 20-year mortgage but do not have to pay interest on the loan.  Some families do not make enough money to get a regular home loan but can afford to pay for a Habitat home.  The houses are not big or fancy but are built strong.  The family has to work 300 hours to help build their house.
DeSoto County Habitat for Humanity builds one or two houses each year in Walls, MS.  This year they will build a home for a Deaf family, Matthew and Melissa Rainey.  They have two hearing children, Matthew Jr. and Macy.
It will take 8 – 10 weeks to build the house.  The first day to volunteer is October 6th at 8:00am and they will build the house frame.  They will do decking and put in windows and doors on October 13th.  They will build the roof on October 20th.  They will put up insulation and drywall on October 27th.  All of this is a guess because it depends on the weather and how many volunteers.
If you want to volunteer to help build the Rainey’s new home, please email Linda Griffith (hearnoevilsister@yahoo.com) and tell her which Saturdays you want to help.  The people who give lunch to the volunteers need to know how much food to make.
There will be a walk-a-thon to raise money for Habitat for Humanity on October 21st in Olive Branch, MS.  Email Linda if you want to register for the walk-a-thon.
