“Volunteering is the ultimate exercise in democracy. You vote in elections once a year, but when you volunteer, you vote every day about the kind of community you want to live in.”

Putting Faith Into Action: How to Help!
Please call 931-645-4242 or email email@example.com for opportunities to help at Habitat’s ReStore.
When people think of Habitat, they think of home ownership. There are many ways for you to help qualified low-income homeowners own a home.
Millard Fuller, Habitat founder, relates the Habitat partnership in this way – Putting faith into action.
Habitat’s ministry is based on the conviction that to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ, we must love and care for one another. Our love must not be words only— it must be true love, which shows itself in action. Habitat provides an opportunity for people to put their faith and love into action. We bring diverse groups of people together to make affordable housing and better communities a reality for everyone.
