Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project

For over 30 years, former U.S. President Jimmy Carter and former first lady Rosalynn Carter have traveled across the world with Habitat for Humanity and thousands of volunteers, donating their time and voices to build and improve homes alongside Habitat homeowners. Their time and effort help raise awareness of the critical need for affordable homeownership, and how Habitat helps homeowners achieve the strength, stability and self-reliance they need to build a better life for themselves and their families. 


2018 Carter Work Project

The 2018 Carter Work Project will be hosted by Habitat for Humanity of St. Joseph County, Indiana, on Aug. 26-31. We invite you to join President and Mrs. Carter and hundreds of volunteers as we help to build or improve more than 30 homes in Mishawaka and South Bend.
