2018 Build Site - 507 North Carico, Carbondale, Illinois

We will be working Saturday, Sept. 22nd 507 N. Carico in Carbondale, IL.

We will be continuing with drywall. This past Saturday we had a GREAT crew turn up from Jasmine, our homeowner's, workplace, Centerstone. Centerstone is a not-for-profit health care organization that provides mental health and substance use disorder treatment, education and support. They also offer individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities life skills development, employment and housing services. We were pleased to have such a large crew turn out to help us unload drywall. People then divided into teams and we made a lot of progress on the drywall.

Meanwhile, over in Murphysboro, our Minor Repairs Program took on a jungle over on Jungle Road. We had done underpinning and insulation on this person's home before as a project. We were very fortunate to have four young women from the Society of Women Engineers and four young men from Kappa Alpha over there to help out. Honestly, it was very hard to find a crew willing to take this project on, so I was deeply grateful to these young people.

Last, I hate to blow my own horn but I am pleased to report that our Habitat for Humanity was well represented this week as Aur Beck and I were honored along with 10 other Southern Illinoisans as Leaders Among Us by the Southern Business Journal. As I read about my fellow honorees, I felt humbled and grateful to be in such fine company. 2018 Class of Leaders Among Us
