NOW: High school students help build homes for families in need

MISHAWAKA, Ind. – The School City of Mishawaka Trade students came together with Saint Joseph County Habitat for Humanity Wednesday morning to help build homes for families in need.

Building homes for families in need gave the students the opportunity to hone in on their trade skills.

“It’s helping us keep our building going at Habitat for Humanity,” Jim Williams, President of SJC Habitat for Humanity, said. “It’s helping serve more families but it’s also very fulfilling for us to know it’s also help them keep their program going and giving these students good hands on experience in the building trades.”

Habitat for Humanity in St. Joseph County has built more than 250 homes for local residents since 1987 and the School City of Mishawaka Trade program has been helping build homes for more than 40 years.

The organization says their goal is to build about 22 Habitat Homes in the next phase of their project.
