ALAMOSA — A fine Sunday in June was the perfect day for a little hammering. Members of the Alamosa Anabaptist Fellowship, Presbyterians and Unitarians joined the volunteers and staff of Habitat for Humanity in building a home at 1605 Edison in Alamosa. More than 30 “carpenters for a day” came together to put Faith into Action. The future Habitat Homeowner is also participating in building with hopes to be completed by the end of the year, LaTara will then own her own home!
Habitat for Humanity has been serving families of the San Luis Valley for 25 years and has been instrumental in constructing 20 affordable homes in Alamosa.
