Georgette Nkeshimana, left, a native of Burundi, and Neema Dominic, from Congo, put in volunteer hours painting a foreclosed home that is being renovated by Habitat for Humanity. Both women eventually hope to have their own Habitat homes, which require them to donate at least 500 hours of labor. Habitat has renovated four foreclosed homes in Lexington this year and will do a fifth next year as part of the city’s Neighborhood Stabilization program.
