Lastly, we want to share these words from Jonathon Reckford, Habitat for Humanity CEO. “As we move into a time of healing, this moment calls on me to reflect on Habitat’s vision: A world where everyone has a decent place to live. That vision is not just a roof and four walls. That ‘place to live’ is in a community that supports each other, a world that values its people as each made in the image of God. It is that world that Dr. King described as the Beloved Community, and that we need to keep building.
There is a wide gulf between the world today and that vision. At Habitat, we believe in the power of building. We believe a bridge can be built over that gulf. But we can only build it together.”

Home Sweet Home
Just weeks after his wedding day, Nathan Franklin was involved in a golf cart accident and suffered a traumatic brain injury. Though he is currently confined to a wheelchair, with the help of his wife, Melissa, he continues to re-learn how do simple tasks. Nathan and Melissa spent almost three years living in a small apartment with little room for Nathan to move around in his wheelchair. Even though the apartment was deemed accessible, their living conditions didn’t meet their needs. Nathan couldn’t access areas in the apartment. Nathan’s wheelchair couldn’t fit in the bathroom, leaving him to brush his teeth in the hallway. The next step in Nathan’s treatment was home environment therapy. To continue to make successful progress, the Franklins knew they needed a change.
