Family Helps Raise Walls on ‘Unity Build’ Sauk Rapids Home [PHOTOS]
SAUK RAPIDS -- Children will grow and many family memories will be made inside a new Habitat for Humanity house in Sauk Rapids.
The home is known as a "Unity Build." Central MN Habitat for Humanity Construction Manager, Art Buhs says the house is designed to bring people of different backgrounds together.
"What we are trying to do is to bring peoples from different cultures, religions, any walk of life that we can to come and build and it's working wonderfully."
Habitat for Humanity crews along with the Muhamud-Omar family, which will be moving into the home, raised the walls of the house Wednesday afternoon.
Deeq Mohamud and Nasra Omar along with their six, soon to be seven, children will be moving into the home this November. Mohamud says he feels honored to move into such a caring and supportive community.
"It means everything, thank you so much to the great community and I really love to be apart of this great community in Sauk Rapids."
Mohamud works as a bilingual communication specialist in the St. Cloud Area School District. Omar is a child care provider at a Somali day care in St. Cloud.
When completed the house will be about 2,000 square feet and will feature six bedrooms and two bathrooms.
The Unity Build home is on North Benton Drive in Sauk Rapids. It was designed by St. Cloud Technical and Community College student, Patrick Michael.
