I enjoy volunteering for Habitat for Humanity Ventura County and am inspired by the teenagers and young adults that volunteer. I am concerned though about the lack of site supervision. There are so many safety violations. OSHA would have a field day! I often wonder how the volunteers avoid getting seriously injured.

What a pleasure to volunteer with Habitat for Humanity of Ventura County! The executive director Stacy is extremely committed and I love their emails. The worksite manager Buzz was really helpful and kind. He put our group of college students to work and we felt like we were able to make some headway in framing the house. The other volunteers are inspiring – a group of retired men and women who work like bees. They put our group of college students to shame. It was a great experience and I will never forget my two days of construction! The family came by and brought us fruit to go with our lunch. It was really rewarding. Thanks so much HFH!
