Frequently Asked Questions

What is the purpose of this campus chapter?

We believe that everyone should have a decent, clean, and safe home to live in. Our main purpose is to build homes with low-income families from poor housing areas. We do this by raising funding for new homes, encouraging campus awareness of housing problems, and by physically building the homes with families.

"I've learned more about the needy than I ever did as a governor or as a president. The sacrifice I thought I would be making turned out to be one of the greatest blessings of my life . . . I don't know of anything I've ever seen that more vividly demonstrates love in action than Habitat for Humanity."

Former U.S. President
