Volunteers provide most of the labor, and individual and corporate donors provide money and materials to build Habitat houses. Partner families themselves invest hundreds of hours of labor - "sweat equity" - into building their homes and the homes of others. Their mortgage payments go into a revolving Fund for Humanity that is used to build more houses.

For those of you interested we could always use more Board Members.
We also could use a PR person, experience would be nice but again not necessary, a college student would be fine.
