Westfed-CCU Habitat build kicks off Monday

The Westfed Coalition of Churches and Cincinnati Christian University (CCU) volunteers will begin work on a new Cincinnati Habitat for Humanity house on Monday at 8 AM in East Price Hill.

The house, to be built at 2848 Claypole Avenue for partner family Te'Anna and Curtis Jones, represents the first-ever build involving both groups.

The house, on a lot that has been vacant since at least 1996, will be built utilizing Habitat's Blair model, a two-bedroom, 1,320-square-foot structure with four bedrooms and a basement.

Westfed and CCU volunteers will be joined by Cincinnati Habitat for Humanity Young Professionals.

This will be the twenty-first build for Westfed, a collection of eight West Side churches.
