Getting to Know Your Local Habitat for Humanity

You’ve no doubt heard of Habitat for Humanity at one point or another. 

But have you ever looked into what they really do? And what you can do to help? 

2020 hosted a customer event in Las Vegas this past February, and we decided to team up with Habitat for Humanity to give a little back to the community. 

Our 2020 team was excited to learn more about Habitat for Humanity’s vision in terms of offering decent housing to families in need, and we wanted to share that knowledge with you. 

Here’s everything you need to know about Habitat for Humanity and what you can do to help your local community.

Their mission


Habitat for Humanity is a non-profit organization whose goal is to offer less fortunate families around the world a place they can proudly call home. 

They build and improve homes in North America, Latin America, the Caribbean, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia, and the Pacific. You can learn more about where they build here. 

Habitat believes that everyone deserves an affordable home, no matter their circumstance. And by offering shelter, families are able to regain the strength and independence they need to build a better life. 

Volunteering


Habitat depends on volunteers to help build and repair houses. 

Volunteers can find opportunities with their local Habitat for Humanity, they can travel to other cities and countries, they can organize company volunteer events, or they can join scheduled build events. 

Habitat for Humanity encourages volunteers to work alongside families to build a new home or improve an existing one. All volunteering information can be found here

Donations


Donations are the foundation of any non-profit organization. Without donations, it’s difficult to move forward. 

Supporting a charity like Habitat for Humanity through donations means you’re helping families in need have a decent place to live, making it possible for them to spend on other necessities such as food, medicine, childcare, and education. 

Monetary donations aren’t all that help, though. People can also donate used furniture, appliances, houseware, building materials, and more. Repurposing used items not only helps those in need, it also helps the environment, making this type of donation a no-brainer.
