Habitat Stories: I am home. I am free.

When you volunteer at a Habitat for Humanity building project, you may not immediately understand the magnitude of your contribution. For you, it’s a day where you lend a hand, and give back to your community. You might not see the total value you’ve added by helping to paint a room or plant a garden. But the value is immeasurable.

Take the next 60 seconds and watch the video below. You’ll meet real Habitat families and they share in their own words, and with big smiles and a few tears, just how much your contribution means. This is the end of the building story, but it’s just the beginning of a new life.

“Because of this house, I am free.”

“Each part of this house has somebody’s sweat, somebody’s prayers, somebody who gave. This was built with love.”
