Habitat group shows love for community

Since its beginning in 2001, the Ellis County Habitat for Humanity has built eight houses in Ellis County, Miles Strunc told members of the Ennis Rotary Club on Tuesday.
Strunc, who is a volunteer with Habitat for Humanity, said of those eight houses, two are in Ennis, five are in Waxahachie and one is in Midlothian. Both Ennis houses are located on Sherman Street. One of the houses was built for a woman who has to use a wheelchair to get around, so the Habitat for Humanity team constructed the house in accordance with Americans with Disabilities Act guidelines, he said.

“We had to do some things for that house that we don’t do for other houses,” Strunc said.

Recipients of Habitat for Humanity houses must complete 350 hours of what Strunc referred to as “sweat equity.”

“This means (they) have to put work into (their) house or someone else’s,” he said.
