WEMOCO students studying carpentry, HVAC, residential electric and plumbing and heating, build the house in two parts at the BOCES 2 Career and Technical Education Center in Spencerport. It is then moved to a Habitat for Humanity site to be completed by volunteers.

Church presented the new homeowners with a hammer to symbolize the hard work and 450 hours of sweat-equity that Cooke and her family put into her new home.

Volunteers from the Rochester community including WEMOCO students helped the family finish the home on-site with over 1,700 hours of work.
