Los Angeles has been selected to host the 2007 Jimmy Carter Work Project, thanks to efforts of Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles. Los Angeles has more people living in poverty than in any other metropolitan area in the U.S. 18% of all L.A. county residents, or 1,732,732 people, live below the poverty level. In October 2007, the Jimmy Carter Work Project will build 16+ homes as part of California’s groundbreaking Affordable Housing Week.

Sweat, smiles and dreams mix with sore muscles, energy and celebration every year for the Jimmy Carter Work Project. In 2007 that celebration will surround greater Los Angeles where 100 affordable houses will be built and rehabilitated in a week.

Amid the affluent lifestyle of glass and glamour the West Coast is famous for, more than 1.7 million people live in poverty in Los Angeles County alone. Habitat for Humanity Greater Los Angeles works year round to serve their need for decent housing.

In one special week this year, however, volunteers from all over the world — led by former President Jimmy Carter, his wife Rosalynn and Habitat CEO Jonathan Reckford — will join Angelenos from Oct. 28 to Nov. 2 for the weeklong build. The annual gathering focuses the world’s attention on the need for affordable housing worldwide. Called the Jimmy Carter Work Project, the international event has been an ongoing light raised against poverty housing by the Carters and Habitat for Humanity International since 1984. The 2006 JCWP built 100 houses in Lonavala, India. Previous JCWP work sites are all over the United States and the world. The first weeklong projects were held in New York City in 1984 and 1985.

JCWP Los Angeles will bring together thousands of volunteers from around the world to build side by side with homeowner families in the Los Angeles area who will contribute 500 hours of sweat equity to help build their home. Join us as we make their dreams for a better life come true.

Volunteers, sign up now to receive an e-mail notification as soon as the application becomes available online.
