Have you ever been involved with Habitat for Humanity? Any thoughts on it either way?

This LCO was able to get a house built for him and his family thanks to Habitat.

13th home is lucky for Habitat family (http://www.whidbeynewstimes.com/portals-code/list.cgi?paper=84&cat=23&id=862476&more=) - “Our family grew and we just outgrew the home,” said Betty, who is an in-home caregiver. Zach owns a lawn care business and both of their incomes, coupled with the increasing rents on Whidbey Island, made it difficult for them to find a bigger house.

The Boatmans also faced a financial roadblock in buying a house in the usual way. Because they chose not to have credit cards, Betty said they don’t have the credit history that helps with financing a home.
