A note From Habitat For Humanity International’s CEo, Jonathan ReckFord

“We are deeply saddened by President Carter’s passing, and our prayers are with Mrs. Carter and the rest of the Carter family,” said Jonathan Reckford, CEO of Habitat for Humanity International. “President and Mrs. Carter began volunteering with Habitat for Humanity near their home in southwest Georgia, soon bringing worldwide attention to the need for decent and affordable housing. We are grateful for the incredible impact he Carters have had on Habitat and on the families who have benefited from their shining example. The Carters put Habitat for Humanity on the map, and their legacy will live on in every family we serve around the world.

Carter’s work Project history

 The seed of Habitat for Humanity’s Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project was planted in 1984, when former U.S. President Jimmy Carter worked at a Habitat site in Americus, Georgia. Later that year, they joined Habitat volunteers in New York for the inaugural Carter Work Project. 

For more than 35 years, President and Mrs. Carter have traveled across the world with Habitat, donating their time and voices to build and improve homes alongside Habitat homeowners. President and Mrs. Carter have worked alongside more than 104,000 volunteers in 14 countries to build, renovate or repair 4,390 homes.
