them to their own homes by answering questions like “What is home?” and “How do
you make a house a home?” and “What is every girl’s habitat?” Girls will gain a

journey that brought them to Habitat for Humanity and how their life has
changed since moving into a safe, decent and affordable home. Habitat staff will help girls learn the
difference between service (helping with immediate need) and action (solving
problems in long-term) as it relates to poverty and housing issues. Other activities include “How Far Words
Travel,” “The Many Faces of Need”

“needs.” The girls can take a tour of a Habitat home that is “Energy Star”
approved, along with a build site that is in the process of building an energy

recycled for craft projects and other household ventures.
