We held two project blessings in Delmar on March 23rd. Friends of Habitat gathered with the families on the sites of their future homes. We broke ground and prayed for successful builds. Congratulations to our future homeowners, Rebecca and Jose, and James. You're on your way home to Delmar!

Thank You
Many of our great volunteers from Collegiate Challenge, NCCC, and AmeriCorps are hosted by St. Phillips Episcopal Church in Laurel. The weekly Wednesday night potlucks are especially appreciated after long weeks of building homes together! 

Below our Construction Manager, Jeff Niethammer, and AmeriCorps Service Members, Gary Post and Kyle Dachtler, enjoy soup at one of the potlucks with NCCC Members and Collegiate Challengers.

Assumption College
Thanks also to a great group of volunteers from Assumption College. They also took our Collegiate Challenge. They spent a week helping on our build sites in Seaford. Great job, everyone! We appreciate your service with us!
