Lend a hand and build a home! Help fulfill Habitat for Humanity's mission to revitalize the appearance of neighborhoods, encourage connections within the community and preserve affordable housing in low-income neighborhoods in the Garland County area.
Participants will renovate, repair and construct new homes for residents in the Hot Springs area. Tasks may also include painting, basic landscaping and clean up.
For one week, my team and I were immersed in a small part of [Mississippi], where the number of potholes and abandoned houses were too many to count. This was an eye opening experience for everyone. No longer were we in a place bombarded with choices of what to eat, where to shop, or where to hang out. We were living in the heart of the area we were going to serve.
