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.
Building simple, decent housing in partnership with God's people in need of adequate housing.
Families should not have to live in poverty housing. Habitat for Humanity provides a "hand up" for families needing simple, decent and safe homes. 75 families have found home ownership through Lawrence Habitat for Humanity. It works!
How does Habitat work?
Habitat for Humanity is in the business of building homes in partnership with families in need. It is a partnership that brings these families together with people committed to making poverty housing unnecessary. We build together, and the family buys the home.
Getting involved with Lawrence Habitat is easy and does not have to demand a lot of your time, money or attention. If you enjoy hands on activity we have build crews on the job site every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday (weather permitting) from 9am-3pm or volunteer at our ReStore and help fund houses while saving hundreds of tons of great useable material from filling our landfill. If construction is not your strength consider serving on a committee, the Board of Directors or helping your church become a Covenant Church with Lawrence Habitat.
