Join us as we welcome the Singleton family home!
Together we will celebrate the Singleton's as they begin the next chapter in their lives; we will thank all of our supporters, especially Frye Regional Medical Center, who helped make this project possible; join in a house blessing; and share in food and fellowship afterwards. Refreshments will be provided.
"Our lives have changed enormously since our arrival in this country seventeen years ago. We arrived with a suitcase full of dreams and hopes for a chance to rebuild our life. One of our goals was to acquire a home of our own. A goal that seemed so impossible at that time since we did not have resources, five mouths to feed and a single source of income. However, Habitat for Humanity appeared giving us hope that homeownership in the states was a possibility for my family.
Villanova University is set to return this spring for their Service and Justice Experience week with Habitat Catawba Valley. The group of 15 students will be serving with us from March 3-10. While they're here, they will work on new construction in the Northstone subdivision as well as Habitat Repairs! projects throughout Catawba County.
Habitat Catawba Valley partners with other local organizations, mainly churches, to host Villanova students in the fall and spring. Churches provide meals for the students as well as activities. Not only do we appreciate the support that our local churches provide, our out-of-state volunteers are always so grateful for your hospitality and welcome into the community.
If your church is interested in providing a meal during Villanova's upcoming service week, click here to sign up.
Be sure to also stay tuned to our Facebook page for photos and updates from our Villanova service week from March 3-10!
