What impresses me about Habitat, more than any other program, is the way each input of resources has a way of expanding exponentially.

Let me explain:
 
In most programs, a dollar in becomes a dollar out.
 
In Habitat, that dollar will be working with corporations, and private donors. That dollar gets matched by the time of volunteers whose lives have taken on an exciting purpose. That dollar will be matched to a homeowner family who is rescued from unbearable conditions, who change from being taxpayer burdens to taxpayers. And that dollar that is invested will be returned by the community’s goodwill toward the positive reputation that goes hand in hand with Habitat."
