Habitat for Humanity-Making Houses into Homes

by Senator Karen Mayne
Assistant Senate Minority Whip
Senate District 5

Methamphetamine houses have been an “eye sore” in our neighborhoods and a health issue for all of us.  People have “cooked” drugs in their homes and poisoned the property.  The dangerous fumes contaminate wood, carpets, walls–everything.  Usually, the house is abandoned, and because of the cost of clean-up, the house sits empty.

This is where Habitat for Humanity comes in.  Habitat has the ability to rebuild a clean and healthy home for a new family.  Senate Bill 12 gives our citizens the option for a check-off on their state tax return.  This donation is in a restricted fund for restoration of meth houses.

Habitat for Humanity is in the business of making houses into homes.

Be sure to donate on your 2010 tax return.
