St. Maximilian volunteers help Oak Park homeowner with needed repairs



Thank you St. Maximilian Volunteers! 

On Saturday, February 1, Habitat for Humanity of Ventura County and volPAH 2.1.14cunteers from St. Maximilian Kolbe Catholic Church in Westlake Village pitched in to complete much needed home repairs for a very deserving Oak Park homeowner.

The homeowner, who has been living alone for close to ten years, was referred to Habitat by Lynn Rollo, her neighbor and guardian angel. Work to be completed on her home includes: clean up and removal of overgrowth, weed, debris and overgrown trees; painting exterior walls; roof replacement; and replacement of the asphalt driveway with concrete to eliminate tripping hazards.

About St. Maximilian “Habitat to the Max” Ministry
Parishioners from St. Maximilian Kolbe Catholic Church in Westlake Village are members of the Habitat to the Max ministry. The ministry’s mission is to sponsor affordable housing, working in partnership with Habitat for Humanity of Ventura County to provide simple, safe, and decent housing for hard working, low-income families living in substandard housing – working in partnership with each family to help them realize their dreams. The first Habitat to the Max house was completed in 2007, followed by a duplex dedicated in 2009, a fourth house dedicated in 2011, and the fifth house dedicated in September of 2012. Partnerships within the Parish and the community help keep the costs at a minimum, maximizing the funds allocated to build simple, decent Habitat homes. To date, the Habitat to the Max ministry has raised over $700,000 to build homes in partnership with Habitat for Humanity of Ventura County. This year, they are raising funds for their sixth home, which will be built in Santa Paula.
