Community Church gives tool kits to Habitat for Humanity

Dick Kroese

Since 2007, and this year was no exception, the Community Church of SaddleBrooke (CCSB) has partnered with Habitat for Humanity Tucson to welcome the newest cohort of homeowners in southern Arizona. This year the congregation’s Mission Committee provided tool kits for the new families who are receiving keys to their safe and affordable homes. These are perfect for fixing minor home repairs that new homeowners are sure to encounter.

This year marks Habitat’s 35th year of building strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter in southern Arizona. Habitat Tucson homeowners must complete 250 hours of “sweat equity,” save for a down payment, attend financial classes and ultimately pay a zero-interest mortgage.

The partnership between the Community Church and Habitat for Humanity first began in 2003. Since that time the Community Church of SaddleBrooke has donated over $50,000 to home building and repair efforts in southern Arizona.

CCSB meets every Sunday morning at 8:30 a.m. in the DesertView Theatre. We are an all-denominational Christian Church and all are welcome.
