Kearney Area Habitat for Humanity...building homes in partnership with God's people in need.


Welcome!

Building season is well underway!
May 7, 2022

Dobytown Kiwanis provided workers and lunch today and Charlie Pickens provided a devotion for our coffee break time. All three home-buyers were on site and a future home-buyer for 2023 was working on his 20 hours to qualify.

During the week the Building Committee members worked on siding, started getting ground ready to set the front sidewalk and installed the tub/shower unit into the bathroom. Bob Geist has been working during the week to get some drywall up on all the ceilings and then some.

On Saturday, about 30 volunteers accomplished a lot of work. Two crews worked on siding the north and south sides of the house.

Ken painted the edges of the house so volunteers can start putting up soffits. Vicky and Elle painted Amanda’s garden shed.

Inside a crew worked on putting up the netting for insulation and then blew in the insulation. Fred Kempf put backers in the walls. Brian and Tep worked on putting up three layers of plywood in the safe room.

Charlie Pickens helped Ken set up an organization area with buckets. . .

And there’s always cleanup!

April 23 and April 30, 2022

April 23--Today is the UNK Big Event Day across the community and we had about 15 students help us. Volunteers from St. Luke’s Episcopal Church served donuts and Evie Gulachi-Johnson provided the devotion at our coffee break. Another group from the church provided lunch for our volunteers.

During the week the Building Committee members put in the windows and doors at Amanda’s house, finished placing the last piece of sheeting on the roof, completed installing blueboard on the sides and peaks and started marking the outer walls so we can start siding.

Another trio of people planted bushes along the north side of our property on 17th street.

The Garden Shed that the Committee put up during the break in January thru March comes in handy to store tools and supplies.

On Saturday the 23rd, students helped by moving dirt around the base of Amanda’s house while others helped clean the out-lot at the entrance to our sub-division. Other volunteers began installing the siding.

Great Job on another windy but beautiful day!
