Development Assistance Ministry - Changing Lives Through Affordable Housing

 

DAM is now a member of the Spring of Life Partnership, a group of seven local churches that work with Habitat for Humanity to create affordable housing for qualified families. Spring of life will be starting its 14th home in the fall of 2016.

The Spring of Life Partnership helps local families afford decent, affordable housing by subsidizing a portion of the construction cost and providing volunteers to rehab existing homes or build new construction. All of the homes are in nearby Chicago area suburbs.

Building and renovating homes requires thousands of hours of labor. We use volunteers to help in virtually every phase of the construction. Maybe you’ve never held a hammer…have a little weekend project experience… or maybe you’re a highly skilled building trade professional… We will need and welcome your help no matter what your skill level.

Regular program build days are Wednesdays and Saturdays during the typical ten month construction period.

If you would like to learn more about the program and the volunteer opportunities, you can visit one of the websites listed below or contact Tarry Hoskins(hoskinstt@att.net) or Bob Ruffatto (rruffatto@aol.com) Bob and Tarry are St Edna parishioners and regular on site volunteers.
