Chattanooga participates in Habitat for Humanity’s Home Builders Blitz
CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (WDEF) — Chattanooga is taking part in the national Habitat for Humanity’s Home Builders Blitz this week.
Professional home-builders and suppliers are providing the labor, funding and materials to help more than 200 families across the U.S.
Locally, the Habitat for Humanity of Greater Chattanooga and Collier Construction are helping a family of four from Kenya build their new 4-bedroom, 2-bathroom home in the Villages of Alton Park.
“Our families have to put in 350 sweat equity hours. And that takes at least a year, maybe a year and a half. So, the family that is going to move to this house already has their 350 sweat equity hours. But this will mean that they will be moving in that much faster,” says Habitat for Humanity of Greater Chattanooga President and CEO David Butler.
This home will be the ninth Habitat home built in this community.
Collier Construction is volunteering 30 employees for 300 hours of skilled work.
