In September 2018, Coles County Habitat completed our 38th home for our newest family, Amber Pedigo, and her sons, Benjamin & Henry. 

A very special thanks to all of our volunteers and construction site supervisors, Zach Whitley & Butch Thompson, for their incredible dedication in completing the home!  96 volunteers worked over 1,500 hours on building this home!  Along with Habitat's longtime loyal volunteers, dozens of new individuals signed up to volunteer and 5 groups including Charleston High School’s Habitat Chapter, Country Financial, EIU's Habitat Chapter, Lakeland College’s Construction Class, and Mattoon Precision.

Habitat extends our deepest gratitude to the following generous donors for their significant financial contributions in supporting this build:
                                                  Country Financial – $3,000 
                                               First Christian Church – $7,171
                                                  Mattoon Precision - $1,380

Wells Fargo Advisors – $11,250

We also want to recognize our generous donors who provided in-kind professional services &/or materials for the home:
