Habitat for Humanity is celebrated at the governor's mansion.
Local Habitat Director Alvin Phillips and Board President Charlie Matthews joined Governor Earl Ray Tomblin in Charleston as Monday was proclaimed "Habitat for Humanity Day" in West Virginia.
Habitat has organizations in cities across the mountain state, and Phillips says a lot of families don't realize they are eligible for the program.
"A lot of times, families think they couldn't qualify, and there are families who could qualify to own their own home under Habitat's ministry, getting them out of a substandard housing situation," he says.
Work is now under way getting habitat's 68th home in Wood County under roof before the arrival of cold weather.
Phillips says it should be completed by February.
