The group is working with Habitat for Humanity and the Carter Center to build homes for families who have been living in tents, at best, since the earthquake nearly three years ago. 

Renoux spoke on Monday about the epicenter of the earthquake and how they are still suffering. The buses that pulled in to help were received warmly and with tears flowing. Locals chanted "welcome" as volunteers got off the buses - ready to build 100 homes.

The children gathered around the volunteers and told them all how happy they are to move from sleeping on the ground on pieces to plastics into homes of their own.

There is perspective that progress in the area is being made. Some of the destruction has been cleared away. What brings the most hope to the residents is the volunteers not forgetting about their suffering. The volunteers spent $5,000 a piece and their vacation time to go help out.

President Jimmy Carter, Mrs. Carter, Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood are just a few of the stars who are lending a helping hand in Haiti this week.
