Habitat for Humanity International is an ecumenical grass-roots organization whose goal is the elimination of poverty housing. Habitat relies mostly on volunteer labor to build homes which are sold without interest to qualifying families who put in "sweat equity" by helping to build their own and other Habitat homes. Check out the official Habitat Website to learn more about what this international agency is accomplishing around the globe.
The Bluffton University chapter sponsors an annual spring break work camp to various locations throughout the United States. Sites have included Neward, N.J.; Hartford, Conn.; Baltimore, Md.; Wauchula, Fla.; and Newland, N.C. During the spring break trips, groups often become close as they cook, worship and laugh together while accomplishing building projects.
The Habitat group also coordinates Saturday workdays in Lima and Putnam County; fund-raisers and awareness activities.
