DAYTON, Ohio, June 30, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Catch the Building Spirit (CtBS), a coalition of Catholic and Presbyterian churches within the Greater Dayton Ohio area, is celebrating its 25th year of building quality, affordable and secure homes for low-income partner families of Habitat for Humanity of Greater Dayton (HHGD).
CtBS is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose mission is to assist low-income families obtain a stable home environment, allowing them to grow in society and become well-adjusted citizens of the local community.
Using volunteer labor, each year CtBS builds one house within the Dayton, Ohio area for an HHGD partner family. CtBS raises the entire cost of the house construction by soliciting monetary donations from local Catholic and Presbyterian parishes, individuals and local corporations, along with in-kind donations of materials and installation labor from local businesses. All donations received are used in support of CtBS annual house build projects.
CtBS is responsible for completion of all interior and exterior construction and the installation of all landscaping on the house lot. CtBS also provides the on-site house build leadership each day to oversee the work of the volunteers and is responsible for all inspections required to comply with local building codes.
CtBS ownership of the entire house build project allows HHGD to more efficiently and effectively use their monetary and house leader resources for additional local house build projects.
