Habitat for Humanity building
Habitat for Humanity Team Raises the Roof!


Hello BLNR!
Spring is around the corner and you may be thinking about how you can get out of the house and volunteer in some capacity. Trust me I know just the organization that would LOVE to put your skills to work in some capacity — Habitat for Humanity. Habitat hosted a special Zoom meeting at noon on March 3 just for BLNR. Some of the topics Habitat discussed included:
– Habitat fundamentals (brief history and goals)
– How their home ownership process works
– Projects in Puget Sound
– How they can use your help (even if you don’t know which end of a hammer to use)
– Q&A

Who We Are
Habitat for Humanity partners with people in your community, and all over the world, to help them build or improve a place they can call home. Habitat homeowners help build their own homes alongside volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage. With your support, Habitat homeowners achieve the strength, stability and independence they need to build a better life for themselves and for their families. Through our 2020 Strategic Plan, Habitat for Humanity will serve more people than ever before through decent and affordable housing.
 
The Habitat Team is initially providing content on this site primarily from the Seattle-King County affiliate. Similar content for the Snohomish and Pierce County Habitat affiliates is already being gathered to share here in the near future.
