College Day is 'Fitting' for Habitat Site

Tomorrow is College Day at Coleman Ridge.

More than 150 college students from the University of Texas at San Antonio, St. Mary’s University, San Antonio College, Our Lady of the Lake University and Trinity University will gather to help us build homes with families in need.

We have always had tremendous support from our area schools, colleges and universities, but we are really excited to have so many students on site at one time.

What a perfect way to continue our work and a unique way to emphasize the benefits of home ownership.

Did you know that children of homeowners are 116% more likely to graduate from college than children of renters? We think that is amazing and how fitting to have college students help build homes in partnership with our families.

The students – and all of our volunteers – are doing more than just building homes.  They are building hope.  They are helping these families build a foundation for a better life full of opportunities for the future.

The benefits of homeownership are numerous and go far beyond just providing simple, decent and affordable shelter for our families.  CLICK HERE to read more.

We applaud these families who are working to build a better life and the students and volunteers who are the heart of our organization.
