    Posted by Ashley Noel: I shot these interviews while on site in Malawi, for my first Global Village build with Habitat for Humanity. I wanted to capture my team and document everyone's feelings, emotions and revelations. It was so beautiful to see these 15 strangers come together with the common goal of building homes and giving these families a solid foundation to build their future. By the end of the trip, we were truly a family, not just with each other, but with the homeowners and the village as well. Our team keeps in touch and we want to continue to support our village in any way we can. Hopefully we can go back in a few years to do a follow up trip! In the meantime, I'm already looking forward to my next Global Village trip next year! God Bless!

Written by Spokesperson for Habitat for Humanity’s National Women Build Week,  Holly Robinson Peete Growing up my parents instilled in me the importance of giving back. To this day, one of my favorite quotes is, “service is the rent that we pay for living” by Marian Wright Edelman. Rodney and I work hard at raising our kids to be service-minded and one of the ways we do this is through example. I have been blessed to be able to lend my name in support of many wonderful organizations that work to improve the lives of women and children. Habitat for Humanity’s work in this area is empowering and necessary. A home provides a safe place for children to grow up confidently and thrive academically. Each year, during the week leading up to Mother’s Day, Habitat for Humanity’s National Women ...

Here at Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles we are working around the clock to build hope, lives, and communities. We are able to do this with help of volunteers, donors and through our ReStores. If  you have not yet visited one of our ReStores, they are home improvement thrift  stores that serve the community and help us generate additional funding to  build more homes. ReStores were established to be a self-sustaining funding source for Habitat for Humanity affiliates, as well as to provide local communities with low-cost building and home improvement materials. The ReStore sells donated materials including new and gently used furniture, appliances, lumber, hardware, vintage and unique items to the public. All of these items are available to the public for at least 50% off retail value.
