Review for Habitat for Humanity International Inc, Massillon, OH, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The work of Habitat is rewarding not only for the eventual homeowners, but for the volunteers and site supervisors as well. Working on these houses is truly a labor of love for most of us and our lives would be significantly reduced if we were not involved with Habitat.

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

Truly making a difference in the lives of those who end up owning the houses. For many families, this is the FIRST house anyone in their family has EVER owned. It is really empowering!

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

Not many - the organization is very efficient and goes through great lengths to make sure the volunteers have a good experience.

Would you volunteer for this group again?

Definitely

What one change could this group make that would improve your volunteer experience?

Build more houses!

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

I have always been a "hands on" kind of guy, and having the opportunity to actually physically build houses is really satisfying. I have also met and become friends with some of the finest people and truly count myself blessed because of that.

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

Wonderful!!

Role:  Volunteer & Thursday Crew and Site Supervisor - working at least two days a week on costruction of Habitat houses.
