CANTON – Like busy bees, three work crews spent an overcast morning affixing vinyl siding to three new homes being built on 23rd Street NE through Habitat for Humanity East Central Ohio.

They are volunteers through Faith Build, Habitat’s interfaith outreach that invites disparate religious groups to come together for the common goal of building a new home. Or, in this case, three.

After a year’s absence due to the pandemic, this year’s Faith Build involves 16 different religious groups in the construction of three homes, according to Courtney Brown, the ministry’s director of Family & Faith Partnership.

“The plan was 2020,” Brown said. “The houses weren’t started because faith groups weren’t gathering. The families have been in the program for two years.”
