The University of Alabama and Auburn University have started a new program to work together to help the people of the state of Alabama. Rather than merely being rivals on the football field, students from the two institutions will collaborate to build homes for residents of communities in Alabama.
The first House United Habitat Build was scheduled to take place in Gulf Shores, Alabama in June 2011. After the devastating tornadoes in Tuscaloosa in April, the decision was made by both schools to move the build to Tuscaloosa. During the week of July 17-23, 2011, students from both institutions came together to work on 2 houses for 2 families in the Holt Community in Tuscaloosa County. In 2012, both schools gathered together again to help families in Baldwin County, Alabama for Alternative Spring Break.
