Executive Director for Columbia County Habitat for Humanity, Brenda Adams, discusses Habitat, the international nonprofit organization that provides affordable housing for families while producing income for communities. Ms. Adams describes the extensive selective process for a family to receive a home. A family of four having a maximum income of $40,000 must show over several interviews their ability to assume the challenges of home ownership; their willingness to take various courses such as budgeting; and a donation of 300 hours of work on their home prior to moving in. Ms. Adams also discusses “passive houses” with energy-efficiency elements that don’t rely on air-furnaces or air conditioners to heat and cool a home. Ms. Adams points out that volunteers for Habitat, like Rotarians, enjoy the fellowship and work that so clearly improves lives.
