The First "Apostles Build"
Published April 28th, 2013
The Alachua County Habitat for Humanity is known for building homes for those in need.
But their current build will be one with a different mission.
This is only the second time Habitat for Humanity has teamed up with faith-based organizations to build houses.
The "Apostles Build" broke ground today in southeast Gainesville.
Close to 16 local church congregations have come together to build a 1,200 square foot house for the Key family, a family that needs a cleaner environment because of their children's health.
The Key family had to complete 200 hours of work on previous Habitat for Humanity houses in order to be considered for one of their own.
They will also have to put 200 hours of work into their own house to fulfill the agreement.
Habitait for Humanity is still accepting donations from other congregations for the project.
