Habitat for Humanity: 6th Largest Home Builder in U.S.

New, 1 comment

As everyone searches for the silver lining around the dark clouds, "green shoots" in the nascent recovery or some sign that the housing industry hasn't entered a century of purgatory before decamping to the moon or Mars for an interplanetary building boom, we get some interesting news from Builder magazine via the AJC. Habitat for Humanity- yes, the non-profit Christian organization that builds houses for the needy- is now the 6th largest home builder in these United States. Which poses the question: are the altruistic volunteers that build Habitat homes stealing American construction jobs?
