Jon Peterson, CEO of Habitat for Humanity in Southern Santa Barbra County, will talk about basic housing generally and Habitat for Humanity specifically. Habitat, a Christian ministry, was founded on the conviction that every man, woman and child should have a simple and decent place to live in dignity and safety. Habitat is dedicated to eliminating substandard housing and homelessness through constructing, rehabilitating, and preserving homes; by advocating for fair and just housing policies; and by providing training and access to resources to help families improve their housing conditions. He will offer many ways for you to get involved. His colleague Alexandra Hamill will assist him in leading the workshop.
