I had the opportunity to spend the last few weekends photographing the final building and dedication of two houses by the Bay Area Habitat for Humanity. They are gearing up to get a great new website up and running. It was fascinating to see how far the houses came along in just one week, and it was great to watch 2 families realize their dreams of home ownership as those keys were handed over. Habitat for Humanity has an amazing team that makes all this happen for families across the bay area.
After the last push to finish up the houses, the dedication of the houses was done. Each family is given gifts of bread, wine, salt, and the Bible. It was an emotional time for these families and those that love them.
