Building Hope One Nail at a Time

The main focus of Habitat for Humanity is to make adequate housing a matter of conscience and action. Jenna NOLA HFH

On service trips I’ve been a part of, we worked in hands-on construction and renovation and sometimes a little deconstruction. From building trusses to framing houses or putting up drywall to staining wood trim, I learned a lot and not just about building a house. I’ve worked with affiliates in seven different states including in New Orleans, LA after Hurricane Katrina.

Habitat is more than building homes; it is building hope. In the 20 years I’ve worked with Habitat I’ve always gotten more out of the work than blisters and sore muscles. I’ve made amazing friends and my heart has been filled with the joy of serving others.

Want to give a hand up to a family that needs shelter, join me in supporting Habitat for Humanity.
