Check out who we are building for and find out how to get involved! 

Meet Jeanne!

 Jeanne and her family were accepted into the  Habitat for Humanity home ownership  program in May of 2013. Jeanne  applied to  the program because of plumbing, electrical,  and insulation issues within her apartment, as  well as unsafe neighborhood  conditions. 
 Jeanne is working hard to raise her  great-  nephew and granddaughter, and wants to  provide them  with a safe, decent place they  can all call home. Jeanne states that  homeownership has always been a dream she considered unattainable until Habitat for Humanity. Habitat is building its 2nd homes in the Conway subdivision of Hope's Crossing. The build days are Wednesday and Saturday 8 A.M.- 2 P.M. Email volunteer@habitatmb.org to help build Jeanne and her family's home.  

Meet Tonda! 

Tonda Chestnut is truly an  inspiration to everyone she  meets. Tonda has four children  and one grandchild, and works  as a customer service  representative. More importantly  she is always giving back to her  community, and touching the  lives of everyone she  meets. Tonda applied to the program because of cramped and unsafe living conditions. She desires to provide a place for her and her children to call home and to feel safe. Tonda has put in countless hours of sweat equity with Habitat and has attended many financial classes where she has learned the knowledge and skills necessary to become a successful homeowner. We are so excited about this build because Tonda is such a deserving person, and also because this will be our first build fully funded by our Fund for Humanity which is made up of mortgage payments from current Habitat homeowners. Habitat is building in the Wampee area of Longs, SC for Tonda. The build days are Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday from 9 A.M. - 3 P.M. Email volunteer@habitatmb.org to help build Tonda and her family's home.
