We are excited to announce construction of another First Presbyterian Church Habitat Home! This home is being built at the corner of Salem and Maxton Streets in the Maxwell Hills/Duncan Park neighborhood. This will provide plenty of opportunities for church volunteer groups during the spring. Faithful members of First Presbyterian have been leaders in volunteer construction during many of the early years and essentially fully built several Habitat homes.

First Presbyterian was one of the founding faith partners for Habitat in Spartanburg and has been by far the most prolific supporter of this ministry to provide an affordable path to home ownership for families who would never otherwise qualify for a mortgage loan. First Presbyterian has fully sponsored fifteen Habitat homes, partially sponsored five more homes, and provided funds to renovate five homes for a total 25 of the 133 homes constructed beginning in 1989. Of the 31 Habitat homeowners who have fully paid off their mortgages, seven are First Presbyterian homeowners.
