My friends and I liked volunteering becasue we know the money Habitat gets from the store helps them build more homes.

The Great!

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

I volunteered in the Home Store with some friends from school. We unpacked and cleaned items that were donated by a movie studio. We priced the items and put them out for sale. There were lamps, furniture, plates and all kinds of decorations.

I've been a volunteer with Habitat of Greater L.A. since 2004 and I love to brag about my involvement. Their staff is made up mostly by volunteers turned staff, including their President/CEO. I take pride in my work with them and hold dear in my heart the families I've built with and for, as well as the hundreds of other volunteers I've met and who've also touched me. I can go on and on but we may run out of bandwidth. I build. I smile.

The Great!

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

Breaking ground...building homes...celebrating families moving into their new homes. I've also seen homes built and crated and shipped to Gulf areas hit hard by Katrina and Rita within weeks of the devastation.

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

help them get a tv show so everyone could experience their work and learn how truly remarkable their business model is.

I have always been aware of Habitat for Humanity's work, but it was not until I started working and volunteering with Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles that I truly understood the importance and impact of this organization. For the board, staff and volunteers at Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles it is all about the families. Every fundraiser, build day, event, press release, partnership, tweet and facebook post has intention behind it - to make affordable housing a matter of conscience and action for hardworking families in Los Angeles. Over the past couple of years I have seen a new ReStore open, environmental sustainability become a priority and a number of lives changed. With more funding and more advocacy, I truly believe that the sky is the limit for Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles.

The Great!

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

the way that Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles has the ability to bring together staff, volunteers, donors, partners, city governments, etc. to make a tangible difference in greater Los Angeles.

Ways to make it better...

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

Make sure that their work is understood by more people. A lot of people have misconceptions about the organization; that it was started by President Carter and that the homes are given away. In actuality President Carter is just its most famous volunteer and partner homeowners must contribute sweat equity, make a manageable down payment and pay back a zero-interest mortgage.
