Many of the volunteers were teachers and other trades people. I checked out Habitat For Humanity out in Arizona, and it looks like there are two locations in Phoenix. Maybe they'll have some work to do on the interiors, because I did ask here in Broward, and they don't do the insides - They only install the kitchen cabinets and appliances - but it's still an outstanding program to help the community.
In the future though, I'd like to see them team up with an organization like Dwell With Dignity, to help out with setting up inside the homes. Dwell with Dignity has a goal: "to bring good design to those less fortunate, inspiring them to maintain a standard of living they can be proud of and thrive in." They could focus on the interior, while Habitat continues to build communities with the exterior. I first learned about Dwell With Dignity on The Nate Berkus Show (see their video and post here) in August. The also have a group I joined on LinedIn. To learn more about Dwell With Dignity, visit their website at Dwell With Dignity.org.
The end result of volunteers & hard work.
