Construction starts on fourth home in Habitat Neighborhood


FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE)  Construction started on another home in a Habitat for Humanity neighborhood. The fourth addition to Fuller’s Landing on West Cook road began Saturday morning.

Organizers for Habitat said the family receiving the home put in 300 hours of volunteering on the previous three homes built in the neighborhood.

“The idea that they can work as a family and as a community to help build homes and to help each other and become a part of this neighborhood and working on making an impact with homes, community, and hope,” Volunteer Coordinator with Fort Wayne Habitat for Humanity Katelyn Leininger said.

Habitat started building homes in the neighborhood in June of this year, and they plan to build eight more homes in Fullers Landing this season. Eventually, there will be over 100 homes in the neighborhood as part of the five to seven year project.
