Grant, volunteers will help Habitat build six homes in 2007
In the 10 years since it was formed, St. Croix Valley Habitat for Humanity has built 26 homes. This year, thanks in part to a commitment from Lutherans, crews will start work on six more.
In recent years, the local Habitat chapter has been averaging four houses a year, said Executive Director Amy Muzzy. In 2007 the commitment from Thrivent Financial for Lutherans, which is donating money and arranging volunteers, will help build three of six houses.
"It's a big jump," Muzzy.
