Trinity Habitat for Humanity is beginning a home rehabilitation project in Wise County this month.

The Fort Worth-based organization will begin work Nov. 14 at the house, located on County Road 2224 just off FM 51 north of Decatur. The scope of work includes interior and exterior remodeling, painting and other items.

First United Methodist Church of Decatur will work the first day, according to J.C. Burch, sponsor relations manager for the project. They could still use a few people, he noted.

The next two days, Devon Energy will provide volunteers, and on Nov. 17, First United Methodist Church of Bridgeport will be staffing the job.

After that, the Thanksgiving week kicks in and volunteers won’t be needed again until Friday, Nov. 30, when Lowe’s will donate a day’s work. The following day the project finishes up with volunteers provided by the Decatur Church of Christ.

Volunteers work from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day, and lunch is provided along with water. Anyone 16 and up is welcome to come and work, but volunteers are encouraged to sign up through sponsoring organizations.

Burch said Habitat plans to build a new house in Decatur the first part of next year if they can secure a lot to build it on. Anyone with a lot they would like to donate, or with ideas along that line, is welcome to contact Burch at or call him at (817)926-9219.
