“As a future homeowner going to the build day after day, I worked side by side with a diverse group of neighbors, each with their own experiences and points of view. In spite of our differences, or maybe because of them, bridges were built. What binds us are not superficial labels that we often use to define ourselves, but something deeper and universal: our humanity.”
Karolyn, a Habitat Homeowner
