Sarasota, Habitat for Humanity
December 1, 2011

I have been volunteering with Sarasota Habitat along side our college students for many years. We keep coming back because of the mission of the organization, their integrity, and the wonderful experience they provide for everyone involved.
As the Director of Student Volunteerism and Service-Learning at the Ringling College of Art and Design, I continue to look for community partners who can provide our students with meaningful opportunities for service in this area, while also offering a valuable learning experience. We have had a wonderful partnership with Sarasota Habitat for year because they continue to offer that and so much more.
Our students always ask when we are going to Sarasota Habitat next. Every time they serve, no matter what the task, they have their eyes opened to the needs of Sarasota families and the wonderful efforts of Sarasota Habitat to meet those needs. They learn the importance of team work, communication and collaboration. And they have a blast!
They are always warmly greeted by Habitat staff and volunteers, who provide everything for a successful service project. They work with the families who will receive the homes. All of the volunteers are always so grateful for each others' service and everyone leaves wanting to return.
This is all from the point of view from a volunteer, but does not even touch upon the important work Habitat does in this community. They are making huge strides in providing safe and affordable housing- which many families are in great need. Their Neighborhood Stabilization Project homes have transformed blighted streets in to beautiful neighborhoods of which homeowners are proud.
Sarasota Habitat is not only building homes and providing housing, they are building communities.
We thank them for all they do as they are truly a GREAT NONPROFIT!
