TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNT) – The Topeka Habitat for Humanity broke ground on three new homes this winter. The homes are located at 2600, 2616 and 2626 S.W. Buchanan St.
Janice Watkins, Topeka Habitat for Humanity CEO, “We have quietly broken ground on three new homes this year. Work is slow because we have to work with small crews because of COVID.”
“These homes have been a partnership with Kansas Secure Title, the City of Topeka and Advisors Excel. We also rely on community support and we are asking the community for support for the Topeka Habitat for Humanity.”
” We hope to finish the first home in the spring of 2021 and we will follow with the second home around mid-year and finish the third home by next Christmas.”
