Habitat Humanitarians: The Scott Brothers
Because of Drew and Jonathan Scott’s extraordinary dedication to Habitat’s vision of a world where everyone has a decent place to live, we have recognized them as Habitat Humanitarians.
The brothers join former U.S. President Jimmy Carter, former first lady Rosalynn Carter and country music stars Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood in this group of special volunteers who serve as tireless champions, advocates and spokespeople to raise awareness of the need for decent, affordable shelter in the United States and around the world.
“We’ve seen firsthand how affordable homeownership changes lives,” Jonathan says. “Owning your own home — it’s not even just the American dream, it’s a human dream, it’s a family dream. It’s something that we think everybody should have the right to and access to, and Habitat for Humanity is who does it the best.”
“We always want to make sure that people realize that when they’re volunteering with Habitat, that when you go to that build site, that’s going to be a family that probably thought they never would’ve in a million years have something like this — a home of their own,” Drew says. “And they’re going to get that thanks to you.”
