Habitat for Humanity is dusting off the hard hats.

They launched their 2014 build season today.

Director of Development for Habitat for Humanity in Waterloo Region, Gerry Lawler says they will be building seven homes in the Kehl Street neighbourhood.

He says moving into your own home is transformational for families. He says at least one child under the age of 13 must be moving into the home.  This is a rule because they believe the younger generation will pay it forward and contribute to their community.

Families are also required to help with the construction.
