Hi, my name is Jean Currie and I am the Team Leader for the HVB trip to Kauai.
I have volunteered with Habitat since 2011 with several of those trips to the island of Kauai, one on the big island and one in Malawi, Africa. It has been some of the best trips of my life. Giving someone a chance for a home but also meeting like-minded people to work together bring such joy to families. I also volunteer with the local veterans home in my hometown. It’s my honor to help these wonderful people that have given so much to all of us. I also volunteer with a group called cycle Oregon. It is a bicycle ride around the state of Oregon. They have several rides to match riding ability and likes, whether it is riding on payment, gravel, or with the family, cycles Oregon offers it.
Some of my hobbies are sewing, reading, and just working around our 5 acres with my family. I have put a lot of skills that I have learned working with everyone on our habitat trips to use in on our works on the farm.
About Our HVB Trip
What if every day you woke up not knowing if you'd be able to pay for rent or provide for your child? For many people across the nation, this is their reality—a high cost of living that has led to poverty housing because they believe that homeownership is unattainable. Living in poverty housing is people’s last resort to ensure there is a roof over their family’s head. However, healthy life starts within the home.
Poverty housing strikes families and individuals throughout their lives. It is an affordable housing crisis across the United States. In efforts to solve this crisis, the Hawaii Village Build program allows YOU to travel with a team and contribute your time and effort to eliminate poverty housing one state at a time, starting with Hawaii.

Can't travel at the moment? No worries, you can still support the cause. If you’re able, we’d love it if you could make a donation of just $10 to help us achieve our mission and solve this housing crisis. Thank you for your contribution. Your donation will go toward our trip costs, which includes insurance, lodging and accomodations.
