Building Homes, Building Hope

Catholic Coalition Build

The Catholic Church Coalition started their 31st Habitat home on Feb. 5th. The Catholic Coalition Build is sponsored by seven local Catholic Churches including Most Blessed Sacrament, Our Lady of Mercy, St. Aloysius, St. Alphonsus, St. George, St. Jean Vianney and St. Patrick. Catholic Churches have partnered with Habitat for Humanity of Greater Baton Rouge since 1996 and since that time local Catholic Churches have sponsored and built at least one home per year in partnership with Habitat. They have built Habitat homes in 12 different neighborhoods, and 36 adults and 71 children have a safe, affordable place to live thanks to their support.
