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

Rating: 5 stars  

I've been a volunteer since 2001. It continues to be a blessing in my life. We build homes for the working poor in parts of our community I did not even know existed. This experience has raised my awareness of the needs of the less fortunate in our community and has given me the opportunity to reach out to help them in a very tangible way. Through the efforts of this Christian non-profit organization we are changing our neighborhoods in a positive way, while offering famiies the chance ot own thier own homes, while thus breaking the cycle of poverty.

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

Canton (Stark County) Ohio
