From Nicaragua to Sacramento to D.C.

L-R Board member Ken and Site Supervisor
Casey joined me in Nicaragua.
The Global Village trip to Nicaragua was amazing. There were three homes completed by the Habitat O.C. and Habitat L.A. affiliates in a week. It was a great bonding experience and I was ready to come back home and travel to Sacramento for the Second Annual Habitat California Advocacy Day.

L-R Board members Stan, David, and Don joined
me on my trip to Sacramento.
More than half of the Habitat for Humanity affiliates in California gathered in Sacramento to meet with legislators to talk about affordable housing and the need for funding. As a group, we met with over 90 legislators and were able to spread the Habitat message. I was lucky enough to be joined by four of our board members during this trip who truly believe in the mission. 

Board member Charles also
joined me in Sacramento.
Today I am on my way to Washington D.C. for Habitat on the Hill 2013 where Habitat affiliates from throughout the country will get a chance to get in front of a new Congress in Washington, advocate for the issues important to Habitat,  and then bring that advocacy knowledge to the field. I am excited to continue spreading the Habitat mission to our country's leaders. Wish me luck!
