Thousands of volunteers gathered in Houston, Texas, for the 1998 Jimmy Carter Work Project. By the end of a week of building through record heat, 100 houses stood where only foundations had existed just a few days before. You can follow the build's day-by-day progress through our photo journal, or read interviews with JCWP homeowners and volunteers.
Inmates Build a House
Through the InnerChange Freedom Initiative, a faith-based program in the Texas prison system, inmates were permitted to leave the prison for community service--and built a house with LaTonia Stephenson.
Green But Willing
Seventy-one women from the Junior League of Houston who never before had swung hammers, been on a roof or gotten so dirty, proved to be just as tough as the next crew.
