Review for HABITAT FOR HUMANITY INTERNATIONAL INC, Gallup, NM, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

HabitatGallup.org is now starting (Spring 13) it's 5th energy star rated home in Gallup with the help of many community partner businesses, non-profits & great volunteers. Families are required to put in 250 hours of 'sweat equity' & pay back the cost without interest as a mortgage. A "Hand Up not a Hand Out" is the motto.

Review for BATTERED FAMILIES SERVICES INC, Gallup, NM, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

Having volunteered with Habiat for Humanity to help fix up some of the apartments, I have noted that the new director is working overtime to prevent the real threat of a lack of funding. The friendly staff are quite supportive towards the traumatized clients. More consideration & services appear to be needed for the children who are ofter left not or poorly attended in the housings.
