Habitat for Humanity

The charity that provides people in need with a warm and welcoming place called 'home'.


A new home for Eleanor

The Barenbrug USA volunteers assisted Habitat for Humanity with the final phase of constructing a home for Eleanor. Eleanor is a young single mom with 4 children who was in need of a house to provide her children with a place they can call 'home'. With the help of the charity and a team of volunteers Eleanor was able to spend a family Christmas in her own house for the first time since a long while.


A special moment for the volunteers and the family was the 'Home Dedication Ceremony' on December the 15th, 2018 where the volunteers handed over the keys of the house to Eleanor.


A Noteworthy Statement from Habitat for Humanity Project Coordinator:


Hello Alicia,


'Thanks for all your help with the home on Eleanor. You have a very motivated crew and my regular volunteers were impressed with their focus. Your crew was like gang busters, you came in prepared and very focused, ready to get the job done and because of your help, we were able to meet critical deadlines and make this project possible for the family.'
