Hundreds of students are giving up their spring break to help make that dream come true.
Bridget King is a single mother living on a fixed income who wanted more than anything to full-fill a lifelong dream, owning her own home.
"It feels really good to have my own home so my four-year-old can grow and have his own bath, his own bedroom and play in his own yard,” explains King.
More than 150 college students from across the country, along with gospel recording artists are hammering King's dream into a reality.
"If I were in their situation I would want someone to help me so I feel blessed to help these people out. I think it's fun and I just get so much out of it,” comments Truman State University student Jessica Nelson.
“It's something we want to do and help someone else's life, someone who not never repay us for what we've done and at the same time God see what we're doing and we're building eternal treasures and that what it's all about,” adds gospel recording artist Sam Konley.
For now these students and artists have opted to build treasures in Tallahassee in this year's Collegiate Challenge.
"The same thing that you think about if I want a home I want the same for another person, so to be a part of this and be involved with habitat putting these projects it's awesome,” reggae and gospel artist Papa San adds.
More than 10,000 students are volunteering at construction sites across the country during Habitat International's Collegiate Challenge.
