Welcome to the Habitat World blog!

By Jonathan Reckford
Habitat for Humanity International CEO

We’re extremely excited to introduce Habitat.org’s newest innovation, a spot where we can share even more news and stories from around Habitat’s world. With this blog, we’ll build on the reporting and well-established outreach of our flagship publication and website to help provide an “inside look” at Habitat’s life-changing work.

It’s the work we do together — homeowners, volunteers and supporters, advocates, staff — that creates decent and affordable housing opportunities and so many wonderful possibilities for better tomorrows. As a reflection of that, the blog will feature a mix of contributors from every facet of the Habitat organization, each sharing their experiences and expertise, and will be a place to visit for information, inspiration and — we hope — conversation.

While the technology might be new to us, the Habitat story we all write together continues to be the same. It’s the story that started more than 30 years ago outside Americus, Ga. And it’s a story we’ll continue to tell on this blog. Our first official contributor will be Habitat homeowner and Americus resident Martha Barnum; check back in a few days to read her post, and check back to see our weekly updates. We hope you’ll join us.
