During August 2014, Habitat for Humanity ended with their challenge of 7 Homes in 7 Days with over 1,000 volunteers from around the country. Included in those volunteers was the UAW/Ford Community Service Team. The homes were built for low-income families in the Morningside Commons neighborhood on Detroit’s east side.
Habitat for Humanity Detroit started its community revitalization work in the Morningside neighborhood in 2006 and will complete its 100th house in the community during this year’s build.
The UAW/Ford Community Service Team divided into two groups and helped to build two out of the seven homes.
