World Habitat Day

Last week I spoke with a weathered older woman who came into my office. She spoke English haltingly, so we conversed in Spanish. She has eight people in her family and her daughter was the only one who had full time work. They lived in a rented two bedroom, one bathroom house, but the owner has requested they move out so he can renovate.

Later that day I received a phone call from another mother. She has three kids and had just moved back to Sheridan from Montana because her husband, the kids' father had abandoned them. She had no job and no home.

Many need better housing, it is undeniable. I have no appeal to you aside from the simple facts. Find out about Habitat for Humanity of the Eastern Bighorns here and Habitat for Humanity International here.
