and turning it around in a group effort to
be a solid beautiful home is so spiritual

The Alpha Phi Omega fraternity of
Hardin-Simmons University is participat-
ing in helping with the project.
Alpha Phi Omega is a service fraterni-
ty that was founded on May IS 1949 at
Abilene Christian University has its
own chapter of Habitat and Abilene
Habitat is hoping that HSU will do the
same. The houses that Habitat builds are
low cost in part because many of their sup-
plies are donated. Habitat sells the houses
to low income families for around 25 to 30
The fact that no interest is asked on
payments is also a wonderful benefit
Victor and Margot Martinez with their
two children Brittany and Aldo have been
chosen to receive one of the two homes.
When asked how they felt the
Martinez family responded "The Lord
had a special blessing for us."
Abilene Habitat is planning to request
the city council to donate some land to
them through the city's HOME Program.
The land donated may be large enough to
build twenty houses on.
Habitat for Humanity's main goal is
not only to build the community's aware-
ness of the existence of poverty housing in
which over 2000 families in Abilene are
forced to live.
"By involving and educating the com-
munity through the results of what can be
accomplished in just one short week by
concerned individuals and groups we
hope others will join in the fight against
poverty housing" said Brenda Coleman
executive director for Abilene Habitat
Daryn R. Straley an officer at Dyess
Air Force Base is one person who has
committed himself to Habitat for
"It's the little things that matter. I
can't end all poverty but every hour I con-
tribute to the completion of a Habitat
house brings one family's dream of own-
ing a quality home that much closer to
reality. If I can be a part of that I will"
The people of Habitat for Humanity
try not to take the things God has given
them for granted. Being a part of Abilene
Habitat reminds them of how fortunate
they really are and to share with others.
Contributing to House-in-a-Week will
give you the opportunity to spread God's
blessings unto others and battle poverty
housing in Abilene. It is one week of hard
work and dedication worth giving and
would be exciting and fulfilling as well.
"House-in-a-Week is for everyone. If
you can swing a hammer paint trim lay
carpet prepare a lunch write out a check
take pictures boost morale andor provide
coffee and donuts then this is the week for
you!" said Coleman.
Individuals and groups are encour-
aged to contact Abilene Habitat to find out
how they can help at 695-HOME (4663).
