Founded in 1976, Habitat for Humanity has constructed over 175,000 houses, which provides homes for over 1 million people. While the organization's most famous volunteer may be former President Jimmy Carter, the group is always on the lookout for other interested parties who would like to give generously of their time. The organization's website contains information on the history of Habitat, along with information about donating and volunteering for the organization. To get a sense of the scope of their work, visitors will want to take a look at the "Where We Build" section of the site. Utilizing a clickable map, visitors can learn about their different home-building efforts in the countries they serve. To really delve into the work of the organization, visitors would do well to peruse the latest edition of Habitat's "Faces and Places" magazine, which contains articles on rural poverty housing initiatives.
