Habitat for Humanity of Palm Beach County, an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to the elimination of sub-standard housing by building simple, safe, and affordable homes for working families, in partnership with God, our community volunteers, and local organizations.
Habitat for Humanity of Palm Beach County partners with families in need to build affordable homes together. Each Habitat partner family is required to invest a minimum of 500 sweat equity hours of their own labor into the construction of homes before being eligible to purchase their home utilizing a 30-year, no-profit, no-interest loan.
I have been volunteering for Habitat for Humanity of Palm Beach County for about two months now. I have interests in serving the community and found the Jupiter Thrift Store and the Habitat Office two places where I could do that. I am so thankful for the opportunity to help even in a small way as it is for such a wonderful cause. As a volunteer I am able to decide how many hours I can contribute each week and am always welcomed with open arms. The organization is made up of a wonderful group of people who appreciate my time. I recommend Habitat as a great place to volunteer for those looking to serve the community.
I retired and wanted something to do. I join Habitat’s Thrift Store. The staff and volunteers are so nice and kind. I have new friends, I am active in the community, and I am no longer bored at home. I use my time wisely and have fun while helping a great cause. Great Organization to volunteer for, my favorite part is working side by side with the families.
It is an amazing organization to volunteer for. Volunteering for them help me with my resume and obtain a job. It showed employers I was not sitting around waiting until a job came to me, but I took action and worked with a non-profit.
