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.
Carol has been a Habitat ambassador for the past 13 months. She can usually be found behind the cash register and states, "I love the customers! I care about what's going on with them. You learn the people who come in here. I tell them, 'Have a Habitat day!' which to me means 'have a good day, be blessed!'" She adds, "I love knowing that we're doing good for somebody...that people can come in here and find something that makes their home better."
Carol is a long-time resident of Lorain and has three grown children. "My kids shop at the ReStore too," she states. Carol is presently enrolled at LCCC in the Culinary Arts program with about 2 years before graduation. She also works part time at a day care cooking for the kids and doing clean up. When asked how she came to Habitat she explained, "About 3 years ago, God told me 'This is not your life'. I asked Him, 'What can I do?' That's when things started to change. I interviewed at Habitat on a Valentine's Day and got hired. Ralph welcomed me to the Habitat family! Now I have a great life! I try to do something good for somebody every day. I try to smile every day. I mention Habitat to people who need help--every story is not a success, but Habitat makes it better!"
Carol demonstrates what we're all about. Have a Habitat day yourself!
