Habitat for Humanity home going up in Bethel Acres next week.

On Tuesday, Oct. 15, the frame will go up for the first Central Oklahoma Habitat for Humanity home built for a family displaced by last May’s devastating tornadoes.

Joel and Bettie Spears lost their home May 19 when an EF4 roared through Bethel Acres in Pottawatomie County. The longtime residents will be on hand for the framing along with officials of Central Oklahoma Habitat and volunteers from Crossings Community Church.

The Oklahoma City church made the homebuilding project possible through donations and manpower.

Central Oklahoma Habitat for Humanity is poised to build as many as 400 homes over the next three to five years for families impacted by the May tornadoes.

Central Oklahoma Habitat is a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing ministry that provides affordable housing for hardworking families with limited income.
