Passport Destination: Habitat for Humanity Homeowner Speaker

The purpose of this event is to educate our CNU community about Habitat for Humanity's mission by hearing a story of personal experience from a local Habitat homeowner. The speaker will inform us on the process that a potential Habitat homeowner goes through. This event illustrates how volunteering for Habitat for Humanity, either at the ReStore or on local builds, personally affects the life of a homeowner and their family. Reflection Question: What is the mission of Habitat for Humanity and how am I able to personally help with this cause in my own community?
