Habitat for Humanity for Greater Miami is by far my favorite non-profit organization. The group is well organized and very effective at achieving its mission. When you volunteer or donate you can actually see a tangible result that truly changes people's lives. Everyone involved is passionate and caring. I've been involved with this group for several years now and will certainly continue to do so for as long as possible.
I'm very active in the Miami Non-profit Community and I have to say that Habitat's cause and, equally as important, business model has to be my favorite by far. It truly is a hand UP (instead of a hand OUT), and I can honestly tell you that I have personally seen it provide families a way out of poverty and into the middle class, transform impoverished neighborhoods, and change volunteers' perspectives of what is truly possible within our community.
