2012 PSA Campaign: Why We Build

For Habitat, “why” isn’t a question. It’s the answer. It’s why we build. Habitat’s new public service campaign highlights the long-term positive outcomes of Habitat’s work – that a house is only the beginning of a life-changing experience for both volunteers and Habitat partner families.

You can help Habitat build houses and hope in your community and around the world
by advocating, volunteering or helping spread the word about the need for safe, affordable housing.
