Since 1987, individuals and organizations have partnered with Houston Habitat for Humanity as a way of giving back. In addition to home-building, the organization helps people by completing financial and home maintenance training.

On day two of Habitat Build, volunteers with UT Health continued to build at the future home site located in northeast Houston.
Volunteers surprised future homeowner Jacoby George and announced that the home being built would belong to his family.
“I’m shocked, I didn’t know I was actually building my home today,” George said. “It’s exciting, man, I mean to put your hands on something you know, you’re building and will eventually own. Hey, I’m excited and I know my kids are gonna be excited as well.”
George said an opportunity like homeownership has been a “life goal” of his.
