Volunteering, generally speaking, is done in people’s free time. Our volunteer spotlight this month is Jamie O'Shea, a volunteer who on the surface shouldn't have the time to volunteer with us, given his profession as an entrepreneur. When asked about this, Jamie told us, "People feel they don't have the time, but I feel I can find the time if I'm being honest with myself."

Thomas Carlyle’s observation about permanence, perseverance and persistence is apt for Habitat Newburgh’s staff, volunteer corps and leadership—for those who labor on building sites and committees, who provide hospitality and counsel partner families, who serve graciously at the ReStore, who witness in the community to the permanence, perseverance and persistence of this “Affiliate of Distinction.” We who, in spite of all obstacles, discouragements and impossibilities, remain Habitat Newburgh Strong.

“It satisfies my creative side,” Pops told us. “But the cherry on top is seeing the families and what it means to them to get an affordable, safe house. The conditions some of the families are forced to live in is atrocious.” Aside from the opportunity to help people better their lives, Frank also calls us his “second family” because, “the camaraderie is like being a firefighter again.”
