The great thing about volunteering to build homes with Habitat for Humanity, is that you get to build alongside the family members. You get to hear their stories about living in unsafe or unaffordable housing, and you wonder how they have survived thus far. Knowing that your hands will work to help change their lives is very rewarding and inspiring. Habitat is a "hand up, not a hand out." The families we partner with want a better life for their children and desire to raise their families in a decent, safe and affordable home that they can call their own. Having a home opens doors to better health, security, and performance in school for children in need. It opens doors to a new perspective, new friendships, new discoveries and a new sense of purpose for volunteers. It opens doors for the people who will live it and the people that help build it. What will you build? Join our team today as we embark on an adventure to build a home in Xela, Guatemala in June 2013. Visit http://www.habitat.org/gv/trip/GV13543 today!
