We are calling it "21 Ways in 21 Days" series. Each weekday in February we'll post a new way you and your friends, family and colleagues can support our mission to end the affordable housing crisis and change lives for deserving families in the community.
We could never have built over 230 homes in Greater Los Angeles without our volunteers and we hope you'll visit this blog in February, find something that appeals to you and join Habitat!
If you simply cannot wait for February, contact us today!

Most often when people consider volunteering with Habitat for Humanity, they believe that will require back-breaking effort involving window installations and climbing on roofs. The truth is there are so many different ways to volunteer, and one of the most needed at this time is office help.
If you have a few days a week that you aren't in class, or you work part time and you want to hone your office skills and help out an amazing cause, please contact us! No ladder climbing required! We would love to hear from you and help you become an important part of our volunteer and Intern network.
You can learn more about more about our Internship programs (how many hours, college-credit etc.) online. Or e-mail us at:

Chevonne Lenard, are very eager to participate in the building process of our Habitat home. It is a great way to gain building experience. Learning about different tools and materials will always come in handy. I believe that we will be great homeowners because I have organized a neighborhood watch program in our current area and have provided my neighbors with city services information. My family and I believe that a family that works together stands strong together. There is also a lot of respect for our neighbors.
ill soon be our neighbors. Habitat for Humanity has made one of my most wanted dreams come true for my family. When they told me that my family was selected to have our own house, I felt really happy with my new home because my kids are gong to be able to have their own space and we are going to live in a nicer neighborhood. I also wish to learn more things with Habitat so I can also help to build new homes for other families. Habitat for Humanity has inspired me to do so and that’s because of all the nice and great things that the people from Habitat for Humanity do.

Why is it Important (Jimmy Carter Work Project)
Very few people have the opportunity to work on the Jimmy Carter Project held each year and few even get the chance to meet Mr. Carter. Only a few receive the chance to actually work with him. It was a huge honor. Mr. Carter is 84 years old and will not be doing this much longer. he is a great humanitarian and is helping to build decent, affordable housing for people in need in the United States and many other countries.

So often people say at the start of the New Year, "I want to give back this year, that is my resolution." Volunteering with HFH is truly giving something back to your community as well as giving something to yourself. It is so easy to volunteer with us, and we are always in need of those who would like to help. You don't have to know how to use a nail gun to help. You can volunteer in our Habitat for Humanity Home Improvement Store, or help your children's school raise money for Nickels for Nails, a program designed to help children raise money for supplies necessary at every build event. Whether you have a week to devote to a Blitz build, or a day to volunteer raising money, you can give back to the Los Angeles community. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about keeping your New Year's resolution!
On December 6th Home Depot and Kaboom partnered together to bring the children of the Habitat for Humanity Greater Los Angeles kids the playground of their dreams. The children, who will soon move into the Vermont village homes, drew pictures of what they wanted their playground to look like. Kaboom and Home Depot delivered. They day was filled with building, painting and plenty of smiles from the kids as well as the kids at heart!
