I have been fortunate enough to work with Habitat for Humanity multiple times and all of my experiences have been phenomenal. Habitat is such a unique organization where you actually get to see the product of your service directly impacting the lives of others. It creates not only a sense of accomplishment, but of community as well. While working on site, you get the chance to meet the future owners of the house who are from our own community and get to share this experience with them by working right alongside them. During both of my times volunteering with Habitat for Humanity I found myself doing things I never imagined,  like nailing in siding, climbing scaffolding, learning what facia is and even getting pretty skillful at swinging a hammer! Everyone I met on site was so passionate about what they were doing. It was so refreshing to be able to work with such caring and generous members of our community and church. I would highly encourage working with Habitat for Humanity to anyone because it is a fun way to give back, make friends and help out people in need right in our own community.
