Central Oklahoma Habitat for Humanity necesita voluntarios queue hablan español — needs volunteers who can speak Spanish — to serve as translators.
The need is especially great for its Family Support Committee, the group of volunteers who guide and encourage Habitat homebuyers through the process of contributing “sweat equity” and the other steps from poverty housing — slums — to their new home.
Habitat also sometimes needs Vietnamese speakers, as well. To volunteer, call 232-4828.
By the way, can you believe it? Central Oklahoma Habitat will dedicate its 700th home next Wednesday in Yukon's Wagner Lake Estates addition. Way to go. More on that next week.
“Central Oklahoma Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing ministry working in partnership with God and the community to build simple, decent, affordable housing, and to provide hope for responsible, hardworking, limited income families living in substandard conditions. Homes that Central Oklahoma Habitat builds are purchased at cost — and at no interest — by qualifying limited income families in need of better housing.”
As a student at Phillips Theological Seminary in Tulsa, I am doing supervised ministry this semester with Habitat and Mayflower Congregational United Church of Christ in Oklahoma City.
