Chico, Calif. --Six new homes are in the works in Chico, and Habitat for Humanity is asking for help from the community in getting the work done.

Habitat for Humanity has been around for 25 years now, and what they essentially do is provide affordable housing for low income families.

In fact, 32 “habitat” houses have been built in Butte County alone.

That’s 91 kids that now have a stable and safe place to call home.

That’s 54 adults who have partnered with the non-profit to help build their own home and others as well.

Something that sets the organization apart is that typically, the people that get the homes work to help build them, and often times, they'll also help out in building more homes for other families in need.

This is not a hand-out in any way - families pay an affordable monthly mortgage.

And this week, there’s a chance for more families to get into a permanent home.

If you think you qualify for a “habitat” home, or would like to help build one, now is your chance; there are two meetings, Wednesday at 6 p.m. at the Dorothy Johnson Center at 775 E 16th Street and one on Saturday at Second Baptist Church at 1053 Ohio Street in Chico.

The meetings are a way for anyone who wants to participate in the program to get information and sign up to be a part of one of the upcoming projects.
