Habitat for Humanity builds affordable housing for families that normally would not be able to purchase a home. It is a hand up, not a hand out. By utilizing volunteers for labor and many donated materials, homes are able to be built very economically.
Ray has been involved with Habitat for Humanity for over ten years. In addition to building homes, Ray has served on the Board of Directors, been CFO, and a member of the Building Committee in Warren County.
