About Laurie

I have lived in the Twin Cities all my life.  I'm a facilitator, most recently in educating adults about diversity and inclusion, which fits perfectly with Habitat for Humanity's mission of providing homes for families regardless of who they are or what they believe.

Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity is extremely lucky to have our Women Builders on site during the summer swinging hammers and building homes. Last summer, around 1,000 women build volunteers worked together to make a difference as change makers in the community.

House Month Volunteers are individuals who choose to give a month of their time on a single project. They go through a training class, and get to see the progress of a home for an entire month! How exciting is that?

Not only is it interesting to see how much can be done on a home within that time-frame, but a House Month Volunteer also gets to meet several groups of volunteers that come to help and grow a rapport with the site supervisor and/or AmeriCorps member.

 

Dave and Hannah have both finished their hard work on site, and Bashir is working right now - so we wanted to share a little bit about each of them and what they had to say about their service as a thank you for all their hard work.
