Since 1986, Habitat for Humanity of Greater Cincinnati has built, renovated, or repaired more than 675 homes throughout a 9-county, 3-state region (Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana). We are one of the top 40 largest affiliates in the country, and we believe that AmeriCorps Members are truly one of the reasons we have been able to reach this goal. At Habitat for Humanity Greater Cincinnati, AmeriCorps members assist on both new construction and rehabs and can expect to work on about 15 different projects, with tasks ranging from framing exterior walls to re-installing trim in a 150 year old historical rehab. At the beginning of the term, our Construction Crew Leaders serve as the hands-on labor while learning individual tasks on various build sites. Towards the end of the term, members become the teacher- often working with up to 25 volunteers per week. Our members gain nonprofit experience and a deeper understanding of the need for affordable housing, while helping us reach our goal of providing affordable homeownership for 20 families in 2021.
Cincinnati is a wonderful place to live and serve, with a downtown ready to explore and plenty of outdoor activities. We offer benefits to second-term members only, which have included in the past: student loan assistance, housing assistance, or a global village trip voucher.
