My experience with habitat for humanity lake County has been life changing. The doors have been open with the opportunity for me to own a home and habitat has made this possible. Habitat for humanity has prepared me with all the steps that I need to own a home. From a class room setting to construction sites. The 500 hours I needed to accomplish this goal has made me a hard worker and responsible. I want to take this time to thank habitat for humanity lake County, all the volunteers, sponsors, and donors for making it possible for all the partner families of Lake County dream come true. You all are truly a blessing.

They have done that for over 540 people by building or renovating 136 homes while also tithing and supporting the build of 257 homes in the Phillipines for 1285 people.

I've worked with other not-for-profit orgs and have been continually impressed by the level of oversight, strong leadership, and stewardship that HFH Lake County operates with. There is thoughtful discussion on decisions, and all discussions start with a reminder of our mission. I am proud to be part of such a high performing organization that focuses on serving families in need from our community. Seeing the faces of our families as we work along side them is worth everything.
