BRINGING THE BUILD TO YOU!

 

From August 9 - 13, 2013, in the heart of downtown at Horton Square, Habitat for Humanity will be building the bones of our newest community, 11 new homes on Elm Street in Escondido. One home will be framed, then broken down into manageable pieces to deliver to its final site.

 

Unless you are already a Habitat volunteer, you might not get an opportunity to see our life-changing programs in action. By

bringing a build site to the people of downtown, we have an

opportunity to share the mission of Habitat, and to honor our wonderful sponsors and volunteers.

 

Stop by to see the action and to enjoy a treat donated by The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf!

The Mission Continues
The Mission Continues is a national nonprofit organization that challenges post-9/11 veterans to transition from military service to community leadership roles at home by sponsoring a veteran's enrollment in a 6-month service and leadership program.  These Fellows dedicate themselves to serving their community, volunteering for at least 20 hours a week with organizations addressing key educational, environmental and social issues.

San Diego Habitat is honored to partner with The Mission Continues, and recently welcomed Anne Marie Conte to its team.  Ms. Conte is an 11-year Air Force veteran and her service has taken her on numerous deployments all over the world.  Through her travels, she always relished coming home and is proud to be a part of the Habitat team.
