What is Habitat for Humanity?
Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit organization that works to eliminate poverty and substandard housing worldwide. Their mission is to provide families with a hand up, not a hand out, in achieving a home, meaning that our volunteer work functions to make cost of living less expensive, but not free for homeowners. Habitat homeowners work at least 350 “sweat equity” hours to be granted their homes.
As volunteers, we work alongside homeowners to build their homes and grow their communities. Specifically, we partner with Habitat for Humanity St. Louis to build across the city and county, fundraise on campus for Habitat St. Louis, volunteer at the local office in tutoring programs and at the ReStore, and educate and advocate for Habitat’s mission.
No previous experience is necessary, and we would love to see you at our next volunteering or fundraising events!
