LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - It's home sweet home for a mother and her two daughters. They will move into a home on North 18th Street in Lafayette.
Love and a lot of sweat went into building the newest Habitat for Humanity house. Area Presbyterian churches raised $55,000 dollars to make the house possible.
"We raise the money necessary to sponsor the house," Faith Presbyterian Representative Daniel Trinkle said. "Then, we also provide a lot of the labor involved in the construction of the house."
The homeowner did not want to be interviewed, but Habitat for Humanity officials said the house's location near Murdock Park is great for her outdoor-loving daughters.
Trinkle said the churches have been working with Habitat since 2000. He said the partnership helps with the churches' missions and Habitat's mission.
"I think it represents the Christian mission to help our neighbors," Trinkle said.
Trinkle said the churches sponsor a home about once every two years. Fundraising for the next sponsored home begins right away.
