Hayley Cressall, Program Intern


Hayley was an intern with our Program team from Canada. “It has been such an amazing experience to get to work with such a passionate team. It’s amazing to see all of the relationships that they have made in the communities and the lives that Habitat has changed. Habitat  enables community members to take control of their own lives and be proud of who they are. I am very proud to be part of the team and part of Habitat’s journey.
