INDIANAPOLIS – Sixteen representatives from 11 Greater Indianapolis United Methodist churches and Metro Ministries began plans for the sixth annual build with Habitat for Humanity of Greater Indianapolis Feb. 19 at the new headquarters for Indy’s Habitat in the 3100 block of North Meridian Street.

Habitat’s Ted Mosley proposed a mid-August through mid-October build in Lawrence on the northeast side of Indianapolis. Arie Hombeak, a single mother of four children (ages 3 through 11), will be the churches’ Habitat partner. In her application, Hombeck said, “Homeownership is the peace of mind knowing we have our own space … It’s a house with a bedroom for each of my kids. It’s a backyard for them to play safely.”

This year, the cost of each build has increased by $5,000 over 2013 prices and will cost $75,000. Those at the meeting will be seeking donations from their respective churches as well as other sources of income.
