ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ) - A local non-profit organization is partnering with businesses in building affordable homes in Roanoke.

Habitat for Humanity is building the 33rd house out of their expected 55 homes this year.

With the help of JES Foundation Repair, a safe and affordable home will be available for a family.

Volunteers say it feels rewarding to know they are helping a family in need.

”It means I’m giving back,” said volunteer Patrick Moore. “The majority of our workers, volunteers, usually retired, so they’re in that category of 60 to 70, and we’ve got a couple of gentlemen in their late 80s. Still down on their hands and knees, hammering nails.”
