One of America’s most recognizable and respected charities Habitat for Humanity has been making the world better since 1976. A sense of home is one of the most important things a child needs to feel safe. Jonathan Reckford, CEO of Habitat for Humanity knows all about this issue.
A good place to live is something that too many people cannot afford. Studies show that one in four U.S. households limits food and other necessities in order to pay for housing and some of the people who suffer the most from this are children.
When you think about the good works done by Habitat for Humanity, one usually thinks about the volunteers who roll up their sleeves and build, but there are other ways to help. Jonathan Reckford spoke with TheCelebrityCafe.com about ways to get involved and described their new “Home is the Key” campaign.
