I love to donate to Habitat for Humanity because I can see how well the money is being spent. The number of homes they've completed in the last couple of years has been phenomenal. Every volunteer or staff member I have interacted with has been very professional and warm. I wish all non-profits were this well-run.

I have been involved with Habitat for Humanity for several years. I started out as an RV Caravanner and have built homes around the Country. My wife and I came to Las Cruces three years in a row to build homes for the community. During this time, I have seen the Mesilla Valley Habitat for Humanity grow into a top notch Affiliate. I am proud to be involved with Habitat in this community and look forward to many years of volunteering with this worthwhile organization.

For me, working with Habitat has been the most exciting part of my retirement. You work WITH families you're helpeing, meet the kids whose lives you are strengthening. And the building work is so rewarding, as every nail. every shingle is another step towards a complete 'home', and you can say, I helped BUILD that. (LAnd my city can say, 'here's another tax payer.')

Mesilla Valley Habitat for Humanity is changing many lives in Southern New Mexico. From the people who work for them, community members who are involved with the organization, to the actual recipients of the homes - numerous citizens are positively impacted by the important work of this organization. Recently what struck me the most was that this non-profit was not only building homes, but also just received a grant to provide homeowners with computers. Great job Mesilla Valley Habitat. Keep it up! You make me proud to be a resident of this area.

My experience was a positive one as a volunteer with Mesilla Valley Habitat ReStore. The team(employees and volunteers) all work great together. They made me feel like another member of their family. Oh and the amount of donors are just wonderful! Most of them come in eager and happy to donate to such a grat cause. "My neighbors all donate to Habitat" one said!!! It is such a wonderful feeling knowing not only is the ReStore helping the builds, but also the families that come in and shop such wonderful treasures at low costs!!!
