Habitat For Humanity CEO On Affordable Housing 
Jonathan ReckfordWith operations from Cape Cod to Calcutta – the specific needs vary – but the objective is the same: eliminate poverty housing and homelessness from the world and make decent shelter a matter of conscience and action. Founded in 1976, the non-profit Habitat for Humanity International has helped build nearly 500,000 decent, affordable houses and served more than two million people around the world.
