DETROIT, Mi. (TV 20 News at Ten) --- Habitat for Humanity plans to build seven homes in seven days in Detroit. Over a thousand volunteers will make it happen.

The project is taking place in an area of the "Morningside" community where vacant homes have taken over.

My TV 20's Jorge Avellan stopped by the construction site and has the story.
