What our volunteers have said about Habitat for Humanity
“I felt empowered!” –Shelly
“I personally just want to step out of my comfort zone. I volunteered on the last Habitat builds, and it impacted me beyond anything I could’ve imagined. I will be involved in future sites, too, and I want to be part of Women Build.” –Diana
“It’s easy to get engulfed in regular day to day stuff. It’s nice to get out there and fill your heart.” –Colleen
