Habitat for Humanity of Madison and Clark Counties began erecting the walls on Ronda Simmons' home this week.
Terry Manges, construction manager of Habitat for Humanity, said it was nice to get things "going in Clark County again."
"Hopefully, this will generate enthusiasm in the community . . . ," he said.
The walls of the house were placed Tuesday with the help of members of Cyril and Methodius Catholic Church of Lemont, Ill.
Father Larry Lisowski said the project gave the church an opportunity to make a difference in someone's life by offering time and resources.
"We're so blessed, I feel like we can give something back," he said.
He, as well as members of the church, believes that aside from the organization, it's also a lot of fun.
Debbie Borosky, church member and volunteer, said that working on the house was a wonderful experience and a good way to get out of the norm. She also said it was an opportunity to give back.
