Volunteer Testimonials

The Indian Wells Valley has been blessed with so many volunteers and donors helping to build affordable decent housing for partner families. The resources and volunteer hours have come from people living both in and out of the Indian Wells Valley. The process of building houses also builds character for all that participate. Habitat has provided the necessary structure to make it all work. Read on to learn what many volunteers have said about this most important community work.

Volunteer Gary, Burroughs High School Instructor

Gary is a Burroughs High School instructor who has performed a pivotal role in engaging high school students in Habitat for Humanity. Habitat provides a path for students to become involved in the community. When the students are old enough, they are encouraged to help build habitat homes. The students also participate in fund raising to build the homes. Gary, along with others created a Habitat for Humanity Charter at Burroughs High School.

“Harmonious, enjoyable and productive week. I truly enjoyed it!” “Great experience! I loved the excitement of creating something to better someone else’s life.” “It was great being with Camplighters and Habitat’s local volunteers and learning new skills and blessing someone else too!” “I loved it! Do we have to wait until next October to return? Let’s come back in February.” “To God be the glory! Fantastic opportunity and experience.” “Sign me up for next year; I feel good!!” These are a few of the sentiments expressed on the final day of our week long Habitat build in Ridgecrest.
