As many of you know safe and affordable housing is a major issue for our area, so this year H.A.C. is building a 'Fundraiser House' to help combat that issue. The House will be built using donated funds, material, and labor from individuals, organizations, and businesses within our community. The House will then be sold on the open market and the proceeds from that sale will go to Housing Assistance's multiple programs- which will serve around 120 people in our area. We are looking for volunteers to help with the build as well as monetary and material sponsors.
