Mark Johnson, Executive Director, talked to us today about Habitat for Humanity of Snohomish County. Mark shared with us Habitat's model to get families into homes and the many volunteer opportunities that exist. He also discussed Habitat Stores and how the public can both donate and shop for building materials ranging from furniture and appliances to cabinets, flooring, lighting, roofing materials, windows, and tools. Habitat sees a world, "in which every person has a decent place to live," through its model of working in partnership with the community to build simple, decent, affordable homes.

Scott Kelly joined us today to talk about D.O.G.S., that is, Dads of Great Students! Scott has helped to drive the program to grow to multiple elementary schools in the South Snohomish area. D.O.G.S. is a program that recruits fathers, grandfathers and other father figures to become engaged with their sons or daughter's school by volunteering to spend time at the school. The program aims to provide positive male role models for students to demonstrate the importance of education and to provide extra sets of eyes and ears to enhance security and reduce bullying.
