Celebrating our 1st Habitat Minute
A big thank you to Brittany Broderson of Coast TV and to all the volunteers at the Gala
Carter Work Project 2017http://habitatsc.ca/?ecwd_event=carter-work-project-2017
The 2017 Carter Work Project will be held at sites across Canada July 9-14, 2017. The two main build sites will be hosted by Habitat Edmonton in Alberta and Habitat Manitoba in Winnipeg. President and Mrs. Carter and hundreds of volunteers will help 150 families across Canada, including Indigenous families, access affordable homeownership.
For over 30 years, former U.S. President Jimmy Carter and former first lady Rosalynn Carter have traveled across the world with Habitat for Humanity and thousands of volunteers, donating their time and voices to build and improve homes alongside Habitat homeowners. Their time and effort helps raise awareness of the critical need for affordable homeownership, and how Habitat helps homeowners achieve the strength, stability and self-reliance they need to build a better life for themselves and their families.
Since 1984, Habitat for Humanity’s Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project has drawn nearly 100,000 enthusiastic volunteers who have rolled up their sleeves to help build or improve homes in partnership with families in need of affordable housing. Together with the Carters, these volunteers have built, renovated or repaired more than 4,000 homes in 14 countries.
