Neighbors on South 17th Street will be seeing more activity than usually during the next year. Two new houses are set to be constructed by Habitat for Humanity of Omaha volunteers and staff at 2425 and 2427 S 17th. One house was demolished to make room for the homes. As of now, the foundations and driveways have been laid.
Two families will be welcomed into the neighborhood after they complete their 350 hours of sweat equity required to purchase a Habitat home. The loan they receive is at a 0% interest rate and is therefore not a handout, but a hand-up. Progress of the homes will be posted regularly!
