Habitat for Humanity helps build housing for partner families. I originally signed up to help paint. Through their Women Build program, I have learned so much more. Volunteers are encouraged to try different construction skills within their own comfort zone. I have learned to build porches and stairs, install baseboards, build sub floors and walls, install insulation ,windows, and doors, build walls and apply foam insulation. And yes, I have even painted. I have made new friends and seen the great joy the family experiences when they receive the keys to their new home. I have gained the confidence to make repairs in my own home that have saved us a few dollars. This has been a definite growing experience.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have more confidence using tools and attempting repairs on my own home. I have also attended dedications and seen the people who will live in the completed houses.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

try to encourage other groups of volunteers to participate. This group seems to attract mostly retired people as helpers.
