Habitat for Humanity updates

Update from Habitat staff!
December 16th, 2011

Background

Since 1985, the mission of Topeka Habitat for Humanity is to provide safe, affordable housing for families in need. They generally build small three bedroom, one bath homes. The main objective is to build a safe, decent yet affordable home and to improve neighborhoods.

The "Ohio project" is a partnership between the Topeka Habitat for Humanity and the Topeka United Methodist churches. On May 21st, 2011, the project started with the interior demolition of a house in the Highland Park area and after much volunteer and contractor labor, it is now finished. 

The house-blessing of the newly refurbished Habitat for Humanity house at 2234 S.E. Ohio St. took place on December 10th with Pastor Lynn in attendance.


Donations

The total cost of the construction of this house was $52,724.09. Approximately $25,000 has been raised for this project, for which we are greatful, but an additional amount of $27,724.09 is still needed in order to meet our financial obligations. So, to continue with the goals of the Topeka Habitat for Humanity, we need your help. Our District Superintendent Rev. Evelyn Fisher is working on a strategy to solicit additional funds to cover our shortfall. 

Want to make a financial gift for the Topeka Habitat Ohio house project now? Cash donations can be made through our church using the pew envelopes on Sunday mornings. They can be completed to indicate how much of your additional offering goes to the Ohio Street Habitat project.

As always, thanks for your continued support.
