It’s a question that Habitat homeowners, volunteers and staff are blessed to answer — and hear answers to — almost daily.
A mom in Missouri sees her Habitat home as way to establish stability for 188bet her two growing boys. A teenager in Colorado reflects on how hard she’s seen her mother work to help build their new home, how much will and determination she has shown. In Uganda, a family now has a safer, healthier place to live and new vocational opportunities.
Comfort. Security. Favorite family memories. A place of refuge. We asked our readers to share with us the many ways they think of home.
Here are some our favorite responses
„Home is a place blessed, where you and your family can be secure, have all you need, and share your sadness and happiness. Where you can help each other as a family. It does not matter how big or small. I live in a small room with my two sons, and we share our thoughts.“ — Honey
„Since 2007, I’ve built four homes with Habitat for Humanity families. The common thread binding each family was that each home became these families’ base for everything: faith, hope, family, school, fellowship, even future struggles and conquests. Home gave these four great families a relief from the stresses of unsuitable or dangerous living conditions so they could focus on what’s next, not just what’s now.“ — Chad
