Habitat for Humanity teams up with local churches to build a new home

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS, Mont. -

It is a perfect fall day for Habitat for Humanity, along with pastors and congregants from several churches in the area. They kicked off the inaugural Habitat for Humanity "Apostles Build".

A coalition of churches came together to build a home for Jim Brown. Brown is a paraplegic in need of a home that accommodates his needs. A wall raising ceremony was also held this morning, including a pancake breakfast. Close to 40 thousand dollars was raised for this project.

"You know, it's really neat seeing it's first initial stuff going on there and it just makes it a whole lot more real,"Brown said. "Boy there it is. Right there. I've been living in the same apartment for a long, long time and it will be really nice to be having something of my own that I can see right there and to get into a home of my own and live a normal life as best I can. Just like everybody else just takes for granted. It's just going to be a really, really neat thing for me to finally come full circle."

This was the first ever Apostles Build in the state of Montana. They plan to have Jim's house ready by the first of the new year.
