Habitat for Humanity has helped build / repair more than 800,000 houses around the world. Their mission is unique – they focus on providing homes for low income families while using quality, locally available building materials that reflect the climate and culture of the place they are in.
The construction of each home typically takes several months and is done almost entirely via volunteer labor. The localweb.is URL /h4h-atlantabuild could be used by the volunteer team to coordinate supply runs, keep track of who will be available on weekdays vs. weekends, and quickly get new volunteers up to speed on the project by simply providing them with the link.
We are building the local web and sharing a new way to use it each day.
