Our fall 2014 fall Habitat for Humanity build begins Saturday, September 6. This event is one we commonly call our “Methodist Build.” Through the dedicated work and financial support of several local Methodist churches, we’ll be helping the Maxwell/Castillo family build their new home at 406 Carver in McKinney, Texas. FUMC Allen serves as the build host on the first Saturday of each month.

Meet Calvin Maxwell and Bianca Castillo, homeowners for the 409 Carver house in McKinney. Both have livedin McKinney since childhood, and they now find themselves building their first home on land that once belonged to Bianca’s great-grandmother. Calvin works at Collin College while Bianca focuses on raising their son, Calvin Jamal, Jr. who turned two in June.
Once approved for their home, this couple jumped right in earning their required 500 sweat equity hours. They are familiar faces at the ongoing build sites and NCCH Restore. Calvin and Bianca have set goals, are dedicated to their family and understand the value of hard work. They both feel blessed and thankful for the opportunity to be building a home of their own.
