CHAMPAIGN -- Nine churches from around the area are coming together for one common goal. For the next 16 weeks, those churches will build a house for an area family. It's part of the Habitat for Humanity project.

Organizers have been working on the idea for the past year. One volunteer says he doesn't mind the hard work because it's all worth it in the end. Some of the families who have been helped out in the past, volunteered their time on the build.
