Marking up the Walls

January 27, 2021

Let the construction begin! We were excited to begin construction on the Callahan’s home this week with the help of Jeff McKinney and his eager students at the Madison County Vo Tech Center! We are so grateful for their involvement! Jeff and his students worked with Habitat staff to mark up the walls of the Callahan home. It’s an interesting process that makes future steps easier and faster. Take a look!

The Therese Reilly Memorial Build

The Reilly family is partnering with our local Habitat affiliate to help make this home for the Callahans possible as they honor the memory of their beloved wife and mother, Therese Reilly. Find out how you can join them in remembering Therese’s life of service by giving and serving in her name.
