Habitat for Humanity

121 Habitat Street
Americus, GA 31709

habitat for Humanity welcomes applications from ex-prisoners.  Habitat's work (building homes for the poor) is done by close to 400 different local projects scattered across the country.  A person wanting to apply to one of those affiliate projects is best off contacting that project directly.  A second way to be involved with Habitat in the U.S. is to work at the Americus headquarters.  Most of the work is not building, but office and administration.  Habitat uses mostly "volunteers" but can provide furnished housing with utilities and a subsistence stipend for them.  Habitat for Humanity also welcomes applications from prisoners who will soon be released.
