Habitat for Humanity home assists two from CEU community

Posted Tuesday, December 1, 2009 - 6:13am

Habitat for Humanity of Castle Country is a non-profit, Christian organization that provides housing for those in need. Currently, Habitat for Humanity is building a house in Castle Dale for non-traditional student Rebecca Norris, her four children and her best friend and care-giver Debbie Pearson.

Norris is disabled and needs a home that is more easily accessible. Her new home will also include an apartment for Pearson, who directs in CEU's faculty assistance center, so that she can continue to help Norris and her children.

Norris and Pearson have put in many hours of service for Habitat for Humanity working on other houses and now their own. Workdays are set up every Saturday to work on the house. The last workday was held on November 22. Volunteers from CEU joined in the project to help Norris and Pearson get one step closer to having a home.
