ACCESS Students Volunteered at Austin Habitat for Humanity

ACCESS students and staff spent their Saturday (April 20th) volunteering at Austin Habitat for Humanity, where they did landscaping, helped build a house, and painted. This was their first experience giving back to the organization, and they departed with a sense of fulfillment, knowing they had made a difference in people's lives.
