A home offers protection and stability. It is a place where friends and families gather to be together. I believe everyone deserves to have a decent place they can call Home.

A BIG THANK YOU for all the lovely people who donated for the Habitat for Humanity Project in Romania. Thanks to you I have been able to reach the objective that was set. You have participated in making this project possible and the Habitat Team and I are grateful to you.
UN GRAND MERCI à tous ceux qui ont fait une donation pour le projet lancé en Roumanie par Habitat pour l'Humanité. Grâce à vous, j'ai réussi à atteindre le minimum requis. Vous avez participé à la réalisation de ce projet, et pour cela, l'équipe Habitat et moi même vous en sommes particulièrement reconnaissant.

About Me

Dear all, My name is Alison Finneran. I am 23 years old, and I graduated from the Sorbonne’s law school in 2014. I am currently getting a year of work experience in my field of studies, before I start a second Masters degree in the United-States in August. I have been a member of the Habitat for Humanity Team since 2013, and was able to go on my first trip last June. We went to Hungary to install insulation in the Joo Family’s home in Dunakeszi. We worked so hard that week that we finished our project earlier than expected, and some of us were sent to help out on a second project. I was happy to have been chosen to help also the Kanalas family during that trip. This experience was very intense, as we worked for long hours under the scorching sun (about 40°C in the shade/104°F), but it was greatly rewarding! We had a wonderful truly motivated and invested team. We worked side by side with the family members, helping them accomplish the project they had for their home. The warm welcome these families had for us was extremely moving, and I am very grateful to all the people who helped put this trip together. I am very much looking forward to this new adventure, meeting these new families, and I am grateful for this opportunity to serve others and put other people’s needs before my own. A BIG thank you to all who will help me raise the minimum sum required for me to be able to join this team.

More Info

Our Team is a diverse and dynamic group of people from The American Church in Paris from multiple nationalities, countries and cultures.

The participants are members of youth ministry, young adult ministry and the congregation desiring to give their time and talent to help provide a home and to give hope for people in Romania. 

The H4H communtiy at our Church which is open to everybody who wants to join and help others in need, has a very long history of trips to mainly Eastern but also sometimes southern Europe. We're glad even in times where money is short to have the opportunity to go abroad and to help others. But also to have the chance to participate in such a great mission. God bless all people!
