Habitat for Humanity: 106th Build Kickoff

Habitat for Humanity of Sangamon County (HFHSC) partner family members Kyla Overby and Tim Anders are working alongside 2017 Central Illinois Presbyterian Habitat for Humanity Build and Community Supporters volunteers to realize their homeownership dreams as the 106th family to successfully complete the program.

Build kickoff will be Sunday, April 9th at 2 pm, at Westminster Presbyterian Church, 533 S Walnut St, in Springfield. The home will be handicap accessible and built by volunteers, community supporters, and 12 local Presbyterian churches. Once completed, Kyla and Tim will make monthly mortgage payments through a zero interest no-profit loan. These mortgage payments will help Habitat build more houses in Sangamon County.
