Habitat for Humanity
1995 Jimmy Carter Workweek
Each year, Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter give a week of their time—along with their construction skills—to build homes and raise awareness of the critical need for affordable housing. The JCWP is held at a different location each year, and attracts volunteers from around the world.
In June 1995, Jonathan joined more than 1,500 volunteers from 39 states and five countries to participate in this JCWP. Twenty-one houses were built in the Watts/Willowbrook community of Los Angeles. In addition to construction work, Jonathan functioned as a Family Partner working with the recipient family to prepare for home ownership.
