The Habitat for Humanity Experience

All hail to construction workers, building a house is no joke! Laying the floor (giggles) took at least 6 hours with four amateurs on the job. It was a great experience and more importantly, for a great cause.

With volunteer labor and donations, Habitat for Humanity provides families and individuals affordable safe places to call home. Good stuff, right?

Echoes of Hope’s ‘Be A Light’ volunteers partnered with Habitat for Humanity/Hollywood for HFH to renovate a house for a family that has lived in apartments with no yard for their little ones to play in.

The day was filled with construction jokes like… “We need one person to lay and another to screw.” and “Look! Two girls are screwing.”

In between jokes we worked hard. We left sore, but grateful that we were able to contribute to something so meaningful. A home is a place of stability, a foundation for success, a loving and supportive environment.
