Who does it take to build a Habitat house?
Just as it takes every nail, every board and every gallon of paint to finish a Habitat for Humanity home, it also takes every hour of hard work by future homeowners and volunteers, every ounce of support from generous donors, and every bit of building expertise to guide the construction process.
In every Habitat home, you find the work and dedication of so many people, all working with a common goal: helping another family build strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter.
Who does it take to build a Habitat house? It takes everyone, and that starts with you!
Your financial support, your voice and your time will help more families achieve the strength, stability and independence they need to build better lives.
