|WE WANT YOU!|
|"What stands out for me about Habitat is the 'hands on' feeling. You raise the money and make projects happen, then you can come down and build the houses yourself. You meet the families and they tell you about their living conditions now and how excited they are about their new homes. This is the kind of day that makes up for the days where you aren't as fulfilled. It just feels great! "
-Mike Shinoda, Linkin Park
Get up and get out today! HFH GLA has at least 7 sites going currently and we build Tuesday - Saturday year-round. You can also help in one of our stores or at the office. As an HFH GLA volunteer, you make a difference in our community and help a family moving towards stability and homeownership.

BILLY GIFFORD CELEBRATES 10 YEARS
On April 16, 2012, Site Supervisor, Billy Gifford, celebrated his 10th Anniversary with HFH GLA! President & CEO, Erin Rank says it best, "Billy has inspired all of us along the way with his incredibly positive attitude and unwavering dedication to our work. He is our go-to guy who teaches new recruits how to inspire and lead volunteers. In 10 years he has seen us grow from 19 homes to more than 400 families served. Billy is a role model of one who puts his faith and convictions into action with his selfless dedication. So to him I say, HAPPY ANNIVERSARY! Thank you for 10 great years, GOD BLESS!"
|LA DODGERS, DEE GORDON CHIPS IN|
Help HFH GLA hit a homerun in the popchips Game Changers competition! The chosen nonprofit wins a day with LA Dodgers shortstop Dee Gordon and a year supply of
popchips, but we need your votes to join the race!
and vote for our idea of having Dee join us to build alongside our partner homeowners & dedicated volunteers on a home rehabilitation site. Winning this competition could help HFH GLA is a number of ways as Dee Gordon's involvement can help raise awareness about the affordable housing crisis in LA County; how important homeownership is to families' health and happiness and how volunteering can change your perspective about the community we live in. Spread the word and help us make this a reality.
Spring is upon us and what better way to usher in the season than to clean out your home, garage, and storage sheds!
