The Chillicothe Area Christian Builders are seeking applicants for their 2020 home. 

For the last 20 years, the group formerly known as Habitat for Humanity has been building one home each year for a family in Chillicothe. 

The group, according to Brenda Wright, vice president of the 10-member board, hosts an orientation meeting each year.

"Anyone who wants to put in an application to be considered for the home has to attend this meeting," she said. "There is quite a process."

Those interested must attend the meeting, fill out a detailed application and welcome one of the group's committees for a home visit. In their November board meeting, the group will decide which family gets the 2020 home. 

Last year, five families applied to be chosen for the newly constructed home.

Most of the work is one by volunteers, and those interested in volunteering or donating should call Wright at 247-3143. 

The organization is funded through grants, donations and the repayment of loans given to the homeowners for the cost of the home loan. 

Those interested in applying are asked to attend an orientation meeting at 6 p.m., on Sept. 9, at the Farmers Electric Building, 201 W. Business Highway 36. Call, 247-3143, for more information.
