Review for Habitat For Humanity International Inc, Santa Ana, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Of all the organizations I could volunteer for, this one has my heart. HfHOC has built over 130 homes and has helped that many families get back on their feet and give them a new start in life. I think the biggest joy for me is to see the children's faces when they see their new home and see the pride in the parents. These homes are not a "gift"; the families work for them and pay mortgages, etc., but it is truly a step up for them.

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

watching a family I interviewed for a home, help construct and move into their new home right after Christmas. The dedication and blessing brought tears to everyone's eyes.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The people working for a nonprofit are a different breed - while they are also concerned with a bottom line, it is not their priority. Everyone who works here, does so because they want to not because it is just a job!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

the best - I worked at a University for 40 years and feel better about my work here than I ever did at my career job. The volunteers are great and as I said - we work here because we want to and believe in the mission, not because of the pay.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Build, build, build.
