WORK AT HABITAT
“Working at Habitat changes a person. We always get to see the best of people: we see
people give of themselves over and over again. We see donors give sacrificially.
We see volunteers give of themselves completely, and we see homebuyers work
extremely hard to help their family’s future. Witnessing that much grace changes us.”
