Habitat Village is Growing

The Habitat Village in Gulfport is looking more like a village. Six families have moved into their new Habitat homes on South Carolina Avenue and two more are under construction. The houses are a part of the 15 new homes that will make up phase one of the Habitat Village. There will be three phases in all. Once finished the Habitat Village will be have 48 to 50 houses. Habitat officials say the organization's pocket books have been pinched since September 11th but not the number of volunteers. They say they get calls every week from people especially from servicemen and women who want to help build a home for a needy family.
