Meet the Green Family
Meet the woman who brags about her neighbors as more than “people you can borrow a cup of sugar from” and reasons why we continue to build.
My Celebration. Our Celebration
Is what Ms. Green exclaimed when she described what it was like to own her a home. “Our life. Our love. Our legacy” she said as she gazed at her three young children. The Green family currently resides in a home built during the ‘Blitz Build’ in Joppa Texas. Established by Habitat for Humanity, the Blitz Build took place over five days, 3,000+ volunteers with a lofty goal of building 13 affordable homes for families like the Greens, and to establish a functional, safe and active community in a timeworn neighborhood. In addition to building homes, Habitat for Humanity has repaired and restored over 150 homes in the Green family neighborhood.
Ms. Green describes her community as “not the typical can I borrow a cup of sugar, but actual friendships”. A sentiment that we find to be the most brag worthy. At Habitat, we are about building a community, not building homes.
Why we build
Revive Your Home. Revive The Planet.
We all play an important role in the longevity of our planet, start by taking action at home. Use what we already have .
↠ By buying existing materials, you’re saving our planet from making more of what we already have.
↠ By donating what you’re not using, you are saving the atmosphere by eliminating the fuel use and emissions needed to transport the items to market.
↠ Items you donate to the ReStore that aren’t able to be resold are deconstructed and recycled, eliminating the majority of their negative environmental footprint while still raising money for the ReStore.
