Habitat for Humanity is a non-profit group. Volunteers build homes with donated products for low-income people.
Laine Himmelmann with Sacramento Habitat says their latest development is called Indian Lane and it's near Luther Burbank High School, off of Florin Road in South Sacramento.
"It's 14-units, 14 single-family homes. They'll all be LEED-certified and it's a transit oriented development so it's kind of a one of a kind project for Sacramento and certainly the largest amount of homes that we've attempted to build at one time. Right now, it's pretty much an empty lot with two concrete foundations so it's still in the beginning stages of construction. And this project will probably take about a year-and-a-half to complete. We're splitting it up into three phases. So the first phase will be four homes which we're building the walls for on Wednesday."
Some of the volunteers helping out on Wednesday will be performers from Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey. The circus will be in Sacramento this weekend and in Stockton next weekend.
Animal rights advocates are critical of Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey for its use of elephants and other animals.
Sacramento Habitat is also building a house in the Oak Park neighborhood and remodeling three homes on Western Avenue in North Sacramento.
