Serving more families means greater fundraising, deeper partnerships, advancing ReStore revenues, and embarking on a new level of community connectedness. All areas of the organization are reaching new plateaus, and all members of our growing, dynamic and motivated team are dedicated to making Habitat’s vision of a world where everyone has a safe and decent place to live a reality.
