Non-Profit, Profit Organizations
Federico De La Garza, Jr.
Personal and Organizational Ethics
There are thousands of non-profit and non-profit organizations we were able to choose from that made differences in the local community and became power houses in today’s engine search world. For this project I decided to choose from two that I am familiar with by volunteering with during my military tour in Korea, Habitat for Humanity, and the other is the profit organization we all use on a daily basis, Google. I will discuss each organization by giving a brief description of what each does and the ethical dilemma each company faced. I will also describe how each company ...view middle of the document...
The fund's money would come from the new homeowners' house payments, no-interest loans provided by supporters and money earned by fund-raising activities. The monies in the Fund for Humanity would be used to build more houses.
In 1968, Koinonia laid out 42 half-acre house sites with four acres reserved as a community park and recreational area. Capital was donated from around the country to start the work. Homes were built and sold to families in need at no profit and no interest. The basic model of Habitat for Humanity had begun.
In September 1976, Millard and Linda called together a group of supporters to discuss the future of their dream. Habitat for Humanity International as an organization was born at this meeting. The eight years that followed proved that the vision of a housing ministry was workable. Faith, hard work and direction set HFHI on its successful course.
In 1984, former U.S. President Jimmy Carter and his wife Rosalynn took their first Habitat work trip, the Jimmy Carter Work Project, to New York City. Their personal involvement in Habitat's ministry brought the organization national visibility and sparked interest in Habitat's work across the nation. HFHI experienced a dramatic increase in the number of new affiliates around the country.
Through the work of Habitat, thousands of low-income families have found new hope in the form of affordable housing. Churches, community groups and others have joined together to successfully tackle a significant social problem―decent housing for affordable, decent homes. Today, Habitat has helped build or repair more than 800,000 houses and served more than 4 million people around the world.
With this dream, there also some problems that HFHI faced while these homes were fabricated and projects that were planned went awry during transactional periods.
