Review for Habitat For Humanity of Martin County, Stuart, FL, USA
I am a brand new volunteer to Habitat for Humanity of Martin County. On June 6, 2014, I retired from Martin County High School , ending a 42 year teaching career as a Spanish and ESOL teacher. When a former colleague invited me to come to the Women Build planning committee meeting, I thought that would offer me an interesting way to help in the community. However, when everyone found that I was bilingual in Spanish and English, I quickly found out about all the other ways I can volunteer at Habitat. I now serve on the family selection committee, mentor a newly accepted family through the three budget sesssions, have completed a home survey visit for a second family, and have been translating documents into Spanish to better serve the Spanish speaking community. I am delighted to have found this way to help in my community and am truly impressed by all the ways Habitat helps in Martin County!
