Habitat For Humanity asks members to put their faith into action by volunteering their time and talents to help eliminate poverty housing in the U.S. and around the world. SJC’s Habitat chapter travels frequently to assist with building projects and provide disaster relief in places like Mississippi, Louisiana, North Carolina, and Texas.
The SJC Habitat for Humanity campus chapter has sent work teams to over 20 affiliates in the US, and made its first international venture in 2004 to a site in Tanzania, Africa. Since then, the group has taken work trips to Chile (2006), Guatemala (2008), Macedonia (2011), Nicaragua (2013), and Romania (2015).
The group also plans awareness programs on campus, takes day trips to building sites in the Midwest, and works closely with the Jasper County Habitat for Humanity affiliate.
No prior construction experience is needed in order to join.
