UCC | DOC Build in Partnership with SICTC

Brandi’s Habitat home is sponsored by the UCC and DOC congregations.  Together, they have sponsored 17 Habitat homes in our local community.  Thank you for your partnership and for helping build a solid foundation for Brandi and her family!

Additionally, Southern Indiana Career & Technical Center (SICTC) is partnering with Habitat for Humanity of Evansville to build a Habitat home over the course of this school year. This new partnership comes at a time when volunteer help is highly needed but also very restricted. Students and teachers from the Career & Technical Center are working together on the first-ever, student-built Habitat home in Evansville. Thank you! Continued…
