We were fortunate yesterday to be able to sponsor a table at Willamette West Habitat for Humanity’s fund raising breakfast. What a wonderful group of people and the stories we heard about some of the families who have gotten to help build their own homes were incredibly inspiring. Habitat for Humanity is helping folks all over the world, one family at a time, putting one foot in front of the other, over and over again in the effort to empower folks with safe affordable housing.
One of the speakers at this event was Clive Rainy. Clive is sometimes called the "first volunteer" as he helped to build the first homes many years ago. He shared with us that he had dreamed he might get to be one of the last volunteers as well, hoping that in his lifetime everyone would have a safe decent to home to live in. As it turns out there is still plenty of work to be done!
