Habitat for Humanity is an excellent program. It is one of the causes where I've donated over the years. Back when former President Jimmy Carter was young enough to build houses, I recall that a hurricane swept through and the only houses left standing were those built by Habitat for Humanity with the help of President Carter. They built to a higher standard. That's what we need.
