Jones County’s Housing Committee’s recent meeting was a review of its past successes and continued goals.

Katie White reported that the Haddock Community Enrichment Center effort was focusing on a December fund-raising concert with more details to be released closer to the event.

Mustard Seed Ministries founder Gary Hargis said 2013 will be the ministry’s biggest year with a million dollars of work being completed, which includes roofs, ramps, and other repairs for people who otherwise could not afford it. He added that $650,000 of that work was done in Jones County.

“Things are changing for us. We are growing in ways we didn’t expect, but we are still putting on roofs for people. We’ve been putting on some for-profit roofs, which allows us to buy materials for the next person who needs our help,” Hargis said.
