Students from across the country are volunteering with Lafayette Habitat for Humanity to help build homes for local families in need of affordable housing.
In March, Lafayette Habitat hosted more than 120 college students and will host an additional 24 students in May. The students will be from St. Joseph's University in Pennsylvania and Gateway Church in Texas.
"What is so unique about this volunteer effort is the fact that these young people are giving up their school break for community service," said LHFH Volunteer Services Director, Joelle Boudreaux.
Participants will also meet with LCG Community Development and Planning staff to discuss initiatives currently underway to address affordable housing needs and to develop a comprehensive plan for Lafayette.
The college students will be continuing to work on two homes on Marne Street in LHFH's focus neighborhood, McComb/Veazey.
"Due to weather and other circumstances outside our control, we're a few weeks behind on our current construction schedule," says Boudreaux.
