This month, our Volunteer Spotlight highlights Lurane Worth. Lurane is an RN who began volunteering with Habitat in April of 2018. Lurane has been instrumental in the success of our BuildHer Boutique in the Pinellas ReStore.
Lurane was affected by Hurricane Irma, both in Pinellas County and in the US Virgin Islands. She explains that she began volunteering with Habitat because “not having ‘a roof over my head’ gave me great compassion for the effects of homelessness, or the gravity of circumstances beyond someone’s control”.
Lurane loves the “hands on” aspect of volunteering with Habitat. “I love working beside other volunteers, candidates and homeowners. I’m impressed with the professional supervisors and staff. Habitat Pinellas combines ‘community’ with ‘Humanity’ right in our front yard!”.
Her favorite volunteer memory was at her first dedication. She was especially touched by the blessing of the home, with everyone in attendance laying their hands on the house.
