2 Button Street

  • On February 9, guests gathered for a groundbreaking for the home of Armando and Rosalie Hernandez and their family. This is Raise the Roof’s seventeenth sponsored Habitat house. Our community is excited to help the Hernandez family build. The family has been working to help other Habitat families build homes. The home that we help them build at 2 Button Street will be their own.

  • Help us fill this page with action pics of our community helping Rosalie and Armando build. Find out how to volunteer here.
