The Austin Family Home

The Austin Family home is being built by Robyn. It is a two story home and the first of three on the lot. It is being built in partnership with Families for Families. Families for Families is a collection of families from the Durham area who have come together to raise the money to sponsor a home. They come out every other week to build and are very excited to get all ages on site working with the Habitat Youth Program. Habitat is very excited to have them back out on site! Anthony is an AmeriCorps member in his second year of service and has worked with Robyn previously on the Young St. block of homes.
