Habitat for Humanity and Google Fiber building home together in Portland neighborhood

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- From vacant lot to family home.

Habitat for Humanity of Metro Louisville is teaming up with Google Fiber to build a house in the Portland neighborhood on Bank Street.

Google Fiber donated $45,000 for the project.

A team of Google Fiber volunteers is also helping with the physical labor for the build.

Habitat's mission focuses on putting God's love into action, by bringing people together to build homes, community and hope.

"Basically, I want to be useful. As the scriptures say, it's my hands and feet that keep the work going. And I have a saying that says 'love is not a feeling, love is what you do.' And so that why we do it," said 

Louisville's Habitat has built or renovated over 90 homes in the Portland neighborhood.

This project is a four-day build, set to be finished on Saturday.
