Fayetteville Area HFH - National - Construction Crew Leader

Fayetteville Area Habitat for Humanity
Come serve with us in Fayetteville, North Carolina, located between the coast and the mountains! Fayetteville Area Habitat for Humanity has been building homes in this community since 1988. Not only do AmeriCorps members have access to the beach and the mountains for weekend or day trips, but Fayetteville itself has a lot to offer, even though it is a relatively small town. We have a small but vibrant downtown area on Hay St., and there are plenty of free festivals and family events. The city borders Fort Bragg, the largest military base in the U.S., which makes the area’s culture unique. AmeriCorps members here will enjoy a number of benefits, including training and networking opportunities, and will join a staff of motivated professionals who are excited to share their experience and knowledge. Here in Fayetteville, you will become part of a close-knit community, where you will be prepared to succeed, encouraged to lead, and challenged to excel. Please visit our website.

About Habitat for Humanity

Habitat for Humanity, founded in 1976, is a global, Christian-based nonprofit organization that grew out of an intentionally multi-racial community in rural Georgia. Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat brings together people of all faiths and people of no faith to build homes, communities and hope. Working alongside each other, we help families and individuals build and improve places to call home and achieve the strength, stability and self-reliance they need to build better lives for themselves. Habitat seeks individuals who have a willingness to affirm these principles and values.
