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.

Earlier this month, Habitat for Humanity celebrated its 10th annual National Women Build Week, which invited women to devote at least one day to help build decent and affordable housing in their local communities. More than 17,000 women from 300 Habitat affiliates in all 50 states participated in Women Build projects last week. The week is sponsored by Lowe’s Home Improvement, who donated nearly $2 million to support National Women Build Week.
