Habitat Success Stories

“Five years ago, a tree fell on my house and caused all but one room to leak. I used all my funds, so I called Habitat for Humanity, which helped me build a new roof. I’ve never experienced anything like this in my life, and I just want to thank everyone at Habitat. God bless you!" - Rita
