"Volunteering for Habitat for Humanity gives you a great feeling. I am proud to be able to help so many families, meet new people, and learn new things."

"My abilities are not as strong as others, but I always feel that my abilities are accepted just for what they are. That acceptance is why I enjoy volunteering with Habitat for Humanity."
- Elkhart County Volunteer, Mary Rasp
"Habitat makes it possible for us to work side by side with partner families and help them improve their lives so that they can not just survive but thrive in the world. Helping a family in need move into a home is the primary mission of Habitat for Humanity. Yet, because of the unique way in which Habitat operates, the organization accomplishes much more. It brings together people of different backgrounds and stations in life to create an environment in which everyone is equal."
- President Jimmy Carter
