More Than Houses is a book of real-life stories of people who have been impacted in ways far beyond the reach of a roof. Meet Habitat for Humanity children who have excelled academically after moving into the "houses that love built." See neighborhoods that have been revitalized and people of different races, political affiliations and religions who have experianced reconciliation. Read about denominational walls shattered and hope restored in prisons where inmates have learned to give back to others. The dream of one man, Millard Fuller, has built more than homes; it has established new beginnings. More Than Houses tells the story of the people behind his dream.
In these pages you will find inspiring, true stories of people who didn't have hopeâ·until they had a home. Stories of children who gained identity and confidence for their future. Of families made stronger and healthier and prison inmates who are now giving back to their communities. Of entire communities bonding together around an ethic of hard work and mutual respect. Of denominational, political, and racial barriers falling with every swing of the hammer. Of a growing host of young people engaged in the quest to end poverty housing. And even some wonderful love stories.
The end result is nothing less than the transformation of lives, communities, and familiesâ·one person, one home at a time. Which, of course, has always been the dreamâ·to build more than houses.

"Rosalynn and I believe in Habitat's integrity, effectiveness, and tremendous vision. With Habitat, we build more than houses. We build families, communities, and hope." â·Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter
