Our SWCC Connection

For over a decade now, our local Habitat chapter has partnered with Southwestern Community College and their College and High School trades programs. The students in these programs under the guidance of their very qualified instructors builds our Habitat homes. We strive to build one house per year. These are typically three-bedroom 1100 square foot standard homes with a crawl space and no garage. Some of the work is done by licensed contractors but the carpentry and electrical work are done by students. This allows students to gain valuable and marketable skills for future employment, improves the community, and allows our small Habitat chapter to do this valuable work with limited volunteer resources.
