Volunteers from the St. Mark's and Hockaday Community Service Programs have dedicated hundreds of hours to build homes with Habitat for Humanity. The families who receive the homes put in their own "sweat equity" working alongside students and parents during the construction. Since 2007, nine homes have been built on Homeland, Bickers and McBroom Street in the Los Altos neighborhood in West Dallas.

Save the date for the dedication for our tenth homeowner, Martha Davila, on April 2!

Ongoing Partnerships
