Habitat for Humanity for Madison County & @Homes Realty Group

When most of us think of Habitat for Humanity, we think of a large construction project entailing a “from scratch” start to finish build. While our @Homes belief in home ownership makes working with Habitat a natural fit, I was a little nervous about my participation in the project. I have terrible depth perception and I’ll admit this makes for hilarious tennis matches, but it also makes assembling IKEA furniture a frustrating and sometimes dangerous task. (My husband can attest -it is painful to behold!)

Fortunately (for me) not all Habitat projects involve constructing a home from scratch. Many of the projects facilitated by our local chapter involve refurbishing existing homes. These homes are then sold to local families in need of adequate housing through the Habitat for Humanity program. And guess what refurbishing entails? Dusting. Sweeping. Painting. Those are things I can actually do without inadvertently causing harm to myself or others!

Habitat for Humanity is a unique organization in the way that it serves our community by meeting a very significant need for adequate housing. You can learn more about volunteer opportunities as well as how to apply for a Habitat House on www.habitatmadisonco.org. I encourage everyone who wants to help this fantastic organization to go ahead and give them a call – even if you lack construction acumen (as I do). They’ll help you find a project that works for you AND serves our community!

(Pro Tip: Bring a friend. I was AMAZED at how secretly handy our agents are! You might be surprised at how agile your friends are with a hammer or saw. Definitely something to keep in mind if you need repairs done around your house…)
