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.
We have been in the business of building and rehabilitating homes for 27 years. But that’s not all we do. We repair houses so people can continue to live in safe, decent homes and so aging housing stock is preserved. We build local and regional partnerships that promote community involvement, neighborhood revitalization and stability, and individual responsibility. We empower families to become financially stable. We also run discount home improvement stores that help individuals furnish their homes at huge savings, that keep tons of materials out of local landfills and that support our programs.
