Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project

Each year since 1984, former President Carter and his wife, Rosalynn, give a week of their time to help us improve and build homes. The Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project helps raise awareness of the critical need for simple, decent and affordable housing. The event attracts volunteers from around the world.
