What is Habitat for Humanity?
At Habitat for Humanity, we build. We build because we believe that everyone, everywhere, should have a healthy, affordable place to call home. More than building homes, we build communities, we build hope and we build the opportunity for families to help themselves. Come together and help us build.
How do I get involved?
We have projects just about every Saturday from 8am-12pm. We meet at the Jamba Juice in the Wilk at 7:45 and carpool over to our project (usually local, occasionally we'll be up in American Fork or down in Spanish Fork). We try our best to be back to BYU by noon, but if you have other appointments, we will share the address of the build site and you can meet us there and leave early.
Each week we'll be sending out an email with a link to this Google Sheet for you to sign up on. Unfortunately, we can usually only have about 10-15 volunteers for most projects, so sign up as soon as you can. If it's already full, sign up on the waitlist and we'll let you know if a spot opens up!
We will also be sharing information about our projects on social media, and we're trying to increase our following there, so please follow these links and like us on Facebook and Instagram!
We are greatly looking forward to working with you, and we sincerely appreciate your service and all that you do. Feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions you have.
One of the builds we did last semester was for a veteran of the Vietnam War. His house was old and decaying and he had only one son there to help him out. Habitat for Humanity took the remodeling project on and we were lucky enough to be a part of it. I attended the build when we put siding around his entire house. What 12 inexperienced volunteers did in one morning would've taken this man and his son several days! At the end of the build, his son came out and thanked us for our help and took a picture with us. You could see how grateful he was. I felt lik the lucky one as I was able to provide meaningful service to this man and his father.
