26, 1992 The Message -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana 15 21 Habitat families move into their new homes By MARY ANN HUGHES, Message staff writer The neighborhood around the 900 block of Line Street in Evansville was quiet last Sunday morning. The Habitat volunteers had all packed up their gear and gone home. They left behind 21 brand new three- and four-bedroom homes. From !Une 15 through June 20, the area had been filled with the sounds of hammer- lag and drilling and the voices of over 2,000 vohmteers. Now, it was quiet, ex- Cept for a few pickup trucks carrying the belongings of the families who were Oving in and neighbors who were knocking on doors, and talking about Where lhey would send their children to school this fall. Thirty-seven-year-old Gerald Mangold walked up to his new home, put i n the front door key, and said, "It feels wonderful." The father of three said he knows lhat without the Habitat program, he would never have the opportunity to own his own home because of his disabilities. The Catholic churches in lVansville's West Deanery sponsored his home. Marigold said he has been coming to Line Street "from the time it was an erapty field. Last week, I was here ew,'ry day. I had something to do with every Part of this house." His family was accepted as a Habitat family after a series of interviews and home visits. They will make monthly payments for the cost of the home, bu no interest is charged. They were also required to contribute 300 hours of "Sweat equity" to the program. e Sponsors of new homes during the June 15-20 Blitz included Catholic hurches in both tbe Evansville East and the Evansville West Deaneries, Res- rreclion Church in Evansville, and St. Mary's Medical Center employees. ely Redeemer Church is a member of the Northside Ministerial Alliance, vhich also sponsored a home. h St. Theresa Church is one of six sponsoring organizations enabling Habitat volunteers and families to build one more Ouse each month for the rest of this year. The 21-house building blitz in six days is Ihe largesl I)uilding project sponsored to date by Habitat.
