Habitat’s mission is to provide safe, decent, affordable homes in our community. “The natural next step is to keep the homes maintained so with that in mind, the focus of these 1 hour educational workshops is to show homeowners how they can easily take care of and prevent common household problems on their own”, says Anne Pfleger, NAWIC North Central Region Director.
Workshops will be led by Construction Specialists from Habitat and their professional build partners. The first RIY workshop was held Saturday, February 7, 2015 at 10:30am. Moser Plumbing, Heating, Electrical in Findlay sponsored and led the workshop which focused on bathroom/plumbing. Other workshops are scheduled for:
~ May 2, 2015
~ August 1, 2015
~ December 5, 2015
All future workshops will be held at 10:30 am at the Findlay Habitat Restore 2042 Tiffin Avenue Findlay, OH. Free childcare will also be provided for attendees.
“Habitat for Humanity Findlay Restore provides a way to keep good, reusable materials out of the waste stream so after each RIY workshop there will be a ½ hour educational spotlight focusing on recycling/repurposing items”, says Pfleger.
