Habitat for Humanity Home Build 2018

This April, GFC participated in a Habitat for Humanity house build, in conjunction with 7 other faith communities in Johnson City. Holston Habitat for Humanity partners with volunteers and families to build affordable housing. Each faith community was designated a specific week to support for this build. 57 volunteers turned out for GFC’s work week! Experienced and novice volunteers alike worked in mud and sun to get siding on the home, keep things organized, bring lunch and more!

The home recipients, Ryan and Olivia, live with their three young children in a one bedroom apartment, and one child has special needs. This home will be a huge blessing to this family, and is expected to complete construction in early June. If anyone is interested in serving or supporting the build during its final weeks, contact the GFC office at 423-928-5601 for details.
