Habitat for Humanity
Email the Coordinators
The Brandeis Habitat for Humanity chapter seeks to alleviate housing insecurity through advocacy, education, and volunteering. We work locally with Household Goods Recycling of Massachusetts (HGRM) to help people in need make a home. With Habitat for Humanity, we work on a local and national level to build homes, through day builds and alternative spring break trips. Volunteers do not need to have any previous experience with building. On campus, we organize advocacy efforts to involve the Brandeis community in changing the policies and attitudes that affect housing insecurity.
Population Served: Habitat affiliates of the Northeast, Habitat homeowners, HGRM clients, and others
Community Partners: Greater Boston Habitat for Humanity, North Shore Habitat for Humanity, HGRM, community non-profits seeking assistance

How to Participate: Interested community partners and students should contact us by email.
Volunteer Time Commitment: Volunteers determine their commitment individually. Build volunteers and alternative spring break participants are required to also help with fundraising events and attend pre-build orientation meetings.
