We are Habitat

We are the future leaders in the affordable housing movement and serve a critical role by mobilizing volunteers, helping communities recover after a disaster, or engaging families and veterans.
We have nearly 500 AmeriCorps members serving in 35 states and the District of Columbia, encompassing more than 140 communities.
Our members are expected to serve more than 2,600 families, provide nearly a million hours of service, engage more than 200,000 volunteers and raise more than $1.1 million in cash and in-kind resources!
We support Habitat’s Veterans Build initiative, Neighborhood Revitalization, ReStores and disaster response.
We are trained to engage with volunteers to construct homes, develop Neighborhood Revitalization programs, support local projects, deconstruct sites, research and develop strategies to enhance processes with various programs and much more.

AmeriCorps National members

As AmeriCorps National members, we engage directly with volunteers, partner families and the communities in which we serve. We may help build, renovate and repair houses, work in partnership with partner families to help them apply for housing, or recruit and mobilize Habitat volunteers.

AmeriCorps VISTA members

As Volunteers in Service to America (VISTA) members, we assist in Habitat’s mission to eliminate substandard housing. We focus on indirect service activities such as generating resources, encouraging and organizing volunteer service, and developing procedures and programs to improve capacity building efforts.
