During the week, the group volunteered with Kent County's local Habitat for Humanity chapter to build LEED certified homes. Habitat for Humanity International was founded in 1976 by Millard and Linda Fuller. Today, Habitat is a world leader in addressing the issue of low-income housing through neighborhood revitalization and homeownership. They partner with families, volunteers, and community organizations to build affordable houses in order to sell them on unique terms to families who otherwise could not afford a home of their own. Since 2007, all of Habitat for Humanities' homes have been LEED certified as a part of their commitment to sustainable building.
