Habitat for Humanity Greater Birmingham is a hand-up for families in need of affordable housing solutions. Those families must have a need for housing assistance and meet income and partnership requirements. For example, prospective homeowners are involved in the work as they are required to provide a minimum of 300 “sweat equity” hours.

Thousands of volunteers donate their time, expertise, and resources to Habitat every year, including BOMA Alabama and McCorquodale Transfer. Volunteers from BOMA Alabama and McCorquodale Transfer were assigned to a new construction site this year. The two groups unloaded a truck of construction supplies, set up workstations, and began framing walls before 9:00am. Over 20 frames were built by day end and somehow not one injury to a bunch of inexperienced volunteers determined to lend a helping hand.

A “construction crew” is scheduled to assemble that hard work in the coming days. In approximately eight weeks, a family of six will have a new home thanks to Habitat Birmingham, various donations, and volunteers trying to make a difference.
