Ten ways to stay involved with Habitat for Humanity

“Every faith has something that speaks to helping mankind.  This is a common thread woven throughout the religions.  Most people want to be part of the solutions once they see the problem.  As the faith relations director, it’s my job to show them the problem and how they can be part of the solution.”

− Tracie McPherson, public relations director, Habitat for Humanity Omaha (Nebraska)
