Dina Rehab, CAIR-Chicago’s Outreach Coordinator, participated in a Habitat for Humanity event organized by JFG Mortgage (www.jfgcorp.com).
Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing ministry, which seeks to eliminate poverty housing and homelessness from the world, and to make decent shelter a matter of conscience and action. Volunteers were assigned specific tasks to help build a home on Chicago’s south side.
Habitat invites people of all backgrounds, races and religions to build houses together in partnership with families in need. The organization has built more than 200,000 houses around the world, providing more than 1,000,000 people in more than 3,000 communities with safe, decent, affordable shelter. Through volunteer labor and donations of money and materials, Habitat builds and rehabilitates simple and decent houses.
