Video: Community Builders
March 20, 2013
Students, faculty, and staff from Washington College traveled to Albany, Americus, and Columbus, Georgia over Spring Break to help build three homes in a partnership with Habitat for Humanity and NeighborWorks Columbus.
Habitat for Humanity Spring 2013
The Spring 2013 Habitat team embarked on an adventure completely different from their previous trips. This year was fraught with challenges from the beginning, when the team learned that they would not be able to build in Columbus, GA as they have in past years and would have to find somewhere new. After months of planning, the officers found a place for the team in Albany, GA. Habitat for Humanity International graciously opened up some of their housing in Americus, GA. The team worked in Albany for four days alongside other groups from Juniata College and Ashland University. The three schools formed bonds as they worked on two handicap-accessible homes. The WAC team traveled back to Columbus on Thursday night to work with Columbus Area Habitat for a day, finishing homes that they had worked on during the Spring 2012 trip. Before returning home, the group was finally able to attend their first dedication ceremony for the home of Albert and Patricia Hartman, whose home the team worked on in Spring 2012.
