Volunteer Opportunity: Bi-lingual Volunteer (English and Spanish)
We are in need of bi-lingual volunteers! Habitat needs volunteers who can help us translate and interpret with our Spanish-speaking volunteers and homeowners. We need a volunteer to come into our office about once a week to help return phone calls and discuss with any other Spanish speakers who may have reached out. If you or someone you know is interested, please fill out our online volunteer application ( or email our Volunteer Coordinator at
Congratulations Maria, Elijah, and Joshua!
Habitat's 139th home dedication took place on February 20th.
During the dedication, Maria shared this heartfelt message:

"On behalf of my family, I want to thank you all for being here to celebrate and gather together here right now, in this moment that my boys and I will forever cherish. We have been blessed all around. Thank you to all of the Habitat for Humanity [office, store, and construction] staff and volunteers. You Guys Rock! Tyson Foods who showed up and helped with sweat hours. Thanks to all who showed at the construction site. God Bless you all. No matter heat, rain, snow, cold conditions you all were here no questions asked. This is an awesome community I am glad to be a part of. Thanks for teaching me that anything is possible, not to give up, those words were felt and kept me going. Juggling work, children, and completing 500 sweat hours well it wasn't easy, but totally worth it. Why you might ask? Well because of all the people, strangers whom I crossed paths within this journey that now I can call family. You showed me that there is still good in people and anything is possible. I will forever be thankful, words can't express all these emotions I am feeling right now. I stand here and say I am officially a homeowner and it feels great.

On behalf of my family, God Bless each and everyone and your families. You all make this possible."

Breaking Cycles of Generational Poverty:
One Home at a Time
Because of you, we are able to continue helping local families like Maria's achieve strength, stability, and self-reliance through affordable homeownership.

Each home you help build breaks cycles of generational poverty. Decent and affordable homes foster stability so adults and children can thrive educationally, financially, and as active members of our community. They form a strong foundation upon which families can build a better life and a path to independence as Habitat homeowners learn the ins and outs of owning a home.

Whether you choose a one-time or monthly gift, you're part of the life-changing process that is the Habitat homeownership program. From their acceptance to the completion of 500 hours of sweat equity the future homeowner puts in, they can experience their own home as its built from the ground up and forge lasting bonds with the homeowners that will become their neighbors.
