More affordable housing could soon be coming to Jacksonville, thanks to the help of some community college students.

Coastal Carolina Community College has partnered with the City of Jacksonville, where they use Community College construction students to build affordable homes in economically distressed areas.

Students have built 10 affordable homes since 1997.

Building materials for the HUD approved homes are provided through grants.

Work on another home in Jacksonville is set to begin at the end of the month.

    More freebies for the people who don't work. How about homes for the ones working so they will have a better place to live while they WORK for aliving. Wish I had some freebies.

    why not put people to work building houses that are on welfare. We (The Taxpayers) provide them with housing so let them help build their free housing.
