Habitat for Humanity Helping with Irma Damage

LifeNets is an avid supporter of Habitat for Humanity. This is one example of how have done this:

Hurricane Irma ripped through Highlands County Florida on September 9, 2017 and damaged more than 13,000 homes with at least 144 being completely uninhabitable. 

Habit for Humanity was there to help provide housing for a single mother with four children.

Another couple had to evacuate the area before hurricane Irma came. They were displaced for over a month and came “home” to water damage and mold which claimed most of their belongings. Their new home will be wheelchair accessible to accommodate the husband’s physical/medical needs.

LifeNets was happy to help support Lisa, one of the volunteers who went there from November 17-23, 2019.

We love the way that Habit for Humanity works by making sure that there is a genuine need for better housing, putting in at least 400 hours of  “sweat equity” and then being able to pay an affordable mortgage.

Below are some images of that represent this selfless service exclaimed by Mark 12:30-31:  

“And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ [a]This is the first commandment. And the second, like it, is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.”
