Loudon County Habitat welcomed World Changers group


Loudon County Habitat for Humanity welcomed World Changers. Habitat partnered with World Changers to put new faces on nine homes in the area of the Loudon County Courthouse square as well as work on new construction in the Hope Haven neighborhood.

Shauna Oden, Executive Director of Loudon County Habitat, said, “We are very excited to have worked with youth and adults from World Changers. Their teams were instrumental in helping us contribute to the Courthouse Square Revitalization project. We normally do not have the man-power available to have this many projects going at once.”

The nine work sites in downtown Loudon created lots of excitement with work crews and equipment in place and neighbors and citizens on porches and sidewalks witnessing the transformations. Projects ranged from replacing rotted porches, wood-framed windows and siding, to completely re-doing roofs. Habitat worked with the city to ensure all elements complement the historic feel of the downtown area.

“World Changers seeks to provide Christian youth and adults with opportunities to serve a community physically and spiritually through practical learning experiences that teach servant-hood and a personal commitment to missions.” (http://www.lifeway.com/worldchangers/...)
