I started out with Habitat for Humanity as a volunteer. This is a grass roots organization that does not give away homes. Homeowners put in hundreds of sweat equity hours building their own homes alongside volunteers and they are committed to their families, their neighborhood and their community. Habitat says they give a hand up, not a hand out, and it's true.
