He shares that his favorite Habitat moment ...he was sweeping the basement floor with a young man who turned out to be the son of the future homeowner. Tom remembers the innocence, happiness, and appreciation that the young man expressed when speaking about his family’s future home. This conversation has stayed with Tom, and continues to inspire him in his work with Habitat.

Want to do something for yourself? Try doing something for others!
When you volunteer...
1.) Your health benefits.
People who volunteer tend to experience fewer aches and pains and less disease.
Volunteering reduces stress, which is beneficial to your health and well-being.
Giving time to help others protects overall health twice as much as aspirin protects against heart disease.

Evelyn says, "Many times when somebody mentions Newburgh it always seems to be negative. One of my hopes for my neighborhood is to stop focusing on the gang and gun violence, and start focusing on the artists who are trying to speak about these issues through their work. Another dream of mine for my community is to have more opportunities for young minority students. I myself am a Hispanic-American...by winning this photography collection I hope to pave the way for future Hispanic photographers in my community."
