This past Friday, seven new families were accepted into our homebuyer program! According to Charles Coats, our Director of Homebuyer Services, this is the single largest group of families ever approved by our board of directors in recent history. Sadly, these families currently live in overcrowded or rundown rental units.

Like all the Habitat homebuyers before them, they will begin to complete 500 hours of sweat equity working at the ReStore and the Habitat office, attending financial fitness and home maintenance classes and, finally, helping to build their own homes and each other’s homes. As they tackle these sweat-equity hours, they work alongside volunteers and Habitat staff members, creating a camaraderie that underpins our mission: Seeking to put God’s love into action, Bryan/College Station Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.

The need for affordable housing in our community is greater than ever. B/CS Habitat, we are grateful to be a part of the solution and humbled by the many financial donors and volunteers who partner with us.

We are excited to welcome these new families into our Habitat family, and we are dedicated to ensuring that everyone in our community has a decent, affordable place to live!
