Our Executive Director, Tom Granger, led a group of courageous and kind hearted volunteers to Haiti for the Jimmy Carter Work project on Nov. 5-12, 2011.
At the end of the 28th Carter Work Project, 100 safe, decent new homes now stand in the Santo community in Léogâne, the epicenter of the January 2010 earthquake.
Habitat for Humanity has become a significant force in Haiti and plans to build 500 homes by the end of 2012. “Habitat for Humanity has made a five-year commitment to serve 50,000 Haitian families, and the Carter Work Project will help us to build homes and raise awareness to meet that goal,” said Jonathan Reckford, CEO of Habitat for Humanity International.
These new houses provided more than just a safer place for families to lay their head at night, they provide hope for a brighter future.
