Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.
Our vision is a world where everyone has a decent place to live.
Roseanne Lavelle has been a ReStore volunteer since last spring. She and her husband, John, who also volunteers at the ReStore, have lived in Avon Lake for 35 years. Roseanne worked at the Avon Lake Public Library and says, “I loved my job—I met so many nice people, but it was time to go.” Now she volunteers at the Habitat ReStore two mornings a week. She comments, “I wanted to find a place to help, to meet some other people, and do some good. I know that I’m doing something small, but it’s helping people get houses that couldn’t otherwise.” Roseanne knows that ReStore profits fund Habitat home construction in Lorain County. She adds, “People need to volunteer—there’s so much to do—and it’s fun!”
