FCC Participates in Interfaith Build
by Rick Tipton
Seeking to put God's love into action, Habitat for Humanity of Metro Louisville brings people together to build homes, community, and hope through affordable housing solutions of homeownership, community development and home repair. Our vision is a world where everyone has a decent place to live.
Since 1985, Habitat Louisville has built or rehabbed 552 homes and completed 184 repair projects. Our homeownership program empowers low-income families to invest in themselves and invest in their communities. By providing a hand up, not a handout, our homebuyers can build a path towards financial stability and a brighter future.
The Interfaith Build brings together people of different faiths to serve together to make our community a better place to live.; the current build is located on Oboe Dr. in southwest Jefferson County. The future homeowners are a young family, Ali & Fatuma, originally from Somalia, raising four young children. When asked why he wanted a home, Ali stated "This means everything to our family. This home means brighter futures for our children. Fatuma and I both come from the toughest of situations growing up and we're grateful to give our children what we never had. This home will hold so many memories for years to come."
The members of First Christian Church have a long history with Habitat for Humanity projects in Louisville. This interfaith build began June 24 and is projected to finish by late October 2021.
The wholeness grant used to fund this ministry was made possible through your faithful financial support of our church and its ministries and help fund a variety of efforts to make our world a better place.
