DENVER (CBS4) - Sunday was the kickoff for Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter's work project as part of Habitat for Humanity in Denver.
This is the 30th year of the former president's worldwide project. The week-long event centers on improving homes and communities around the metro area.
Volunteers will help build and repair homes in Denver's Globeville neighborhood and take on preservation projects.
"It means a lot, it's a life experience for them and myself," home recipient Taji Martinez said. "It's a lot of hard work and all the volunteers and the families we put into this appreciate everything everybody is able to do."
Hundreds of community members including politicians and the Denver Broncos will help in the efforts.
