FLINT, Mich. (AP) - A program involving Flint that aims to help Habitat for Humanity affiliates across the nation create homes that also can be used as a place to work is expanding.

The Flint Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1KtulAo ) Habitat for Humanity is working on two Flint locations, turning each into a first-floor business and a second-story home. Work also began recently on a third in Davison.

Leslie Voiles, a volunteer coordinator, says the buildings will give entrepreneurs long-term success not only through a new home but also a place to begin their business.

Last year, the program kicked off in Flint.

Habitat for Humanity raises money for the renovation and the building but recipients are responsible for paying back the organization through a zero-interest mortgage on the building for the next 20 years.
