“The most defining moment of my service was the first time I framed and raised the first wall of a home with other volunteers and the homeowner. We all worked together to raise the wall into place, and afterward everyone cheered and hugged each other. The homeowner even started to tear up. It was in that moment that I fully felt the impact of the work the construction crew leaders do at Habitat.”

Melinda, AmeriCorps National Construction Crew Leader
