Habitat begins work in storm-damaged areas

On Tuesday, the frame will go up for the first Central Oklahoma Habitat for Humanity home built for a family displaced by the May tornadoes. Joel and Bettie Spears lost their home May 19 when an EF4 roared through Bethel Acres in Pottawatomie County. The couple will be on hand for the framing along with volunteers from Crossings Community Church. The Oklahoma City church made the homebuilding project possible through donations and manpower. Central Oklahoma Habitat for Humanity is poised to build as many as 400 homes in the next three to five years for families impacted by the tornadoes.
