For Amherst College, the recent completion a five-year Habitat For Humanity construction project on Stanley Street means a job well done. For Ashlee Cancio-Bello, it means coming home, and a little something more.

“Habitat is like love in action,” said Cancio-Bello, who now lives in one of the houses that the college helped make a reality.
