Home dedicated in Clay

By Gary Lloyd

CLAY — A Greater Birmingham Habitat for Humanity was dedicated in the city of Clay on Good Friday.

The rehabilitation of Darius Humphrey’s home on Debbie Drive in Clay began in March. Building on Faith is a house-building event, uniting congregations of various faiths together to build houses in partnership with local families.

The home is a property acquired through a nationwide partnership with Bank of America to rehabilitate vacant properties and match them with homeowners. Humphrey and his brother, Curtis, are excited to move into their new home.

“This is a dream come true for me and my brother,” Humphrey said. “This is the beginning of becoming independent, hard working, responsible and productive young men. Thank you for helping us buy a home of our own.”

Churches that provided volunteers on this home include All Saints’ Episcopal Church, Cathedral Church of the Advent, Episcopal Church of the Holy Apostles, Episcopal Church of St. Francis of Assisi, First Wesleyan Church of Anniston, Holy Infant of Prague Catholic Church, Independent Presbyterian Church, Liberty Crossings United Methodist Church, Our Lady of the Valley Catholic Church and St. Luke’s Episcopal Church.
