On Thursday, December 5, the City of Newburgh Housing Coalition hosted its first Who’s Who in Housing Community Forum.  The general public was invited to learn about agencies serving the City of Newburgh that assist people with their housing needs. The purpose of this event was to re-introduce and connect the residents of the City of Newburgh to its very own Housing Coalition, and to get agencies one to one exposure to the community outside of their normal offices.

One of the wonderful things about Habitat for Humanity’s model is the power to mobilize people in their communities to reach across cultural divides and celebrate our shared humanity. Our work is not done alone, and it takes commitment and time to see the impact. Our Day of Service and our day of advocacy are both vivid illustrations of the power of coming together to work towards a common purpose and of what we attempt to do here in Newburgh week in, week out; provide a bridge between people to build together, because we understand that it will take more than a day or a single organization to bring about change for our beloved community.

Susan can usually be found on site Wednesdays and Fridays, grinning and eager to get her hands dirty and learn something new. One of her favorite aspects of volunteering is all of the firsts that she has the chance to experience. From working with new tools to delving into different home improvement projects, the variety has an allure that has kept Susan coming back for almost 2 years.
