The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.
Coos Bay Area Habitat for Humanity is a local affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International , a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing organization. Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope. Our mission here at Coos Bay Area Habitat is based on the belief that no one should have to live in substandard housing.
Habitat for Humanity works in partnership with people in need to build affordable, safe, and environmentally-conscious homes. Volunteers provide most of the labor, while individual and corporate donors provide the money and materials necessary to build our Habitat homes. With the help of every day people like yourself, we come one step closer to achieving that goal every day.
To date, Coos Bay Area Habitat for Humanity has provided 24 families, 33 adults and 58 children, a hand-up out of substandard housing. This year we will break ground on our 25th home!
We don't just build homes for those in need; we also focus on the community through our critical home repair program, which brings low income homeowners a much needed hand up while refreshing the neighborhoods you know and love!
