Habitat for Humanity Greater SF

I volunteer for Habitat for Humanity once a week at their San Francisco office helping with data entry. This branch builds homes for needy families in 3 Bay Area counties, San Francisco, Marin and San Mateo. Right now their biggest build is in Daly City, the city just south of San Francisco, with 36 homes being built, to be completed sometime next year. They're also building homes in Menlo Park and East Palo Alto.

A volunteer photographer put together this wonderful video showing a compilation of photos from the Daly City build. The song she chose to go along with it really makes an impact.
from the photographer Julia Jackson: "Habitat for Humanity Greater San Francisco is in the process of building 36, mostly 3 bedroom homes, for 36 hard-working low income families. This video shows the work to date set to the music. This project is a huge undertaking and is being accomplished with the help of thousands of volunteers, most with no experience in the building trades. Join us in making this happen for just a day or on a regular basis. Check out their website at for more information.
On a personal note, I am a volunteer photographer for Habitat for Humanity Greater San Francisco. You can see me out at the work site in Daly City, as well as, home revitalization projects in Menlo Park and East Palo Alto and community projects in San Francisco and San Mateo counties.
The wonderful theme song for this video is "Home" by Phillip Phillips."

Ages ago I volunteered my wallpapering services for a Habitat of Humanity house in Atlanta and loved the experience. I'll never forget it! What a great choice for volunteering once a week, Mad! Bravo.
