Vision

The committee goal for the 2017-2018 Columbian year is to promote, educate and encourage councils to volunteer and create a budget line item for Habitat for Humanity (HFH). The long term goal is together as a State organization reach full Home Sponsorship of $75,000.

This would afford every council to be treated as a ‘sponsor’ and participate in builds across the state.

Background

As a featured Knights of Columbus Community program, Habitat for Humanity offers KofC councils continued opportunities to help our communities and families.

Last year, Knights, at the local level, reported donating more than 1.3 million volunteer service hours and $1.7 million to Habitat for Humanity helping to build or renovate houses for deserving families in need.

Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit, Christian organization founded in 1976 that seeks to eliminate poverty housing and homelessness one family at a time.  The organization assists in providing quality-built, affordable homes to needy families by cooperatively involving the future homeowner with community volunteers and suppliers to build or renovate their home.  To date, Habitat for Humanity has provided more than 3 million people with safe, personal shelter.

In addition to a down payment, recipients work alongside the construction crew and volunteers, and are then provided an affordable mortgage plan.  Knights look favorable on the mission of Habitat for Humanity, which not only helps people to become homeowners, but actively involves them in their homes’ preparation and construction.  This teaches them valuable skills, develops confidence and provides experience.  In addition, many families will create “sweat equity” with the hours of actually working to build their home.

Positive Consequences for Councils

HFH volunteering helps councils in many ways because participation:

  • Generates a renewed interest in Council activities.
  • Increases active retention of those involved.
  • Generates participation and interest in our Council at the parish.
  • Rejuvenates brother knights not seen at general meetings.
  • Helps the community and supports our Bishops.

 

At your local level, your council has a unique and rewarding community opportunity to volunteer and help Habit for Humanity.  Explore and join this great community volunteer effort.

Contact the local Habitat for Humanity affiliate in your community.  Visit www.habitat.org or e-mail volunteer@habitat.org for information on your local affiliate.  They will be able to brief you on the volunteer opportunities available to council members, prospects and families.

How Councils Can Participate in HFH

For the most up-to-date information on how your council can participate with Habitat for Humanity, please visit the Knights of Columbus website: http://www.kofc.org or the Knights of Columbus Fraternal Training Portal.

There are 3 primary methods councils can get involved, Sponsor Builds, through the Team Building Program and helping without Sponsorship:

Sponsor Builds

  • Sponsorship opportunities begin at $5,000 up to a full Home Sponsorship of $75,000.
  • Sponsors receive multiple employee build day opportunities, high visibility signage on the construction site, recognition in marketing materials, and participation in Home dedications and other key Habitat events.
  • Available build days are Wednesday-Saturday from 7:30am-3:30pm.

 

Team Building Program

Team Build Program participants commit to donations and volunteers to help build, repair, and renovate homes alongside hard-working, low-income families.

The Team Building Program is an option for volunteer teams who would like to take their donation of time a step farther and make an even bigger impact in building hope and homes for families in need in our community.

Team Building Program participants donate both their time and financial sponsorship for an unforgettable day of camaraderie and building.

10 participants, $1,000 donation includes:

  1. A day of building a Habitat for Humanity house
  2. Designated Site Leader
  3. Team Builder T-Shirt for all participants
  4. Lunch provided for all participants by a member of our staff
  5. A photo of your group on site
  6. Your group’s day of service highlighted on our Facebook and Twitter
  7. Priority event scheduling.

 

Companies may recruit additional volunteers for an additional requested donation of $100 per volunteer.

Available build days are Wednesday-Saturday from 7:30am-3:30pm.

Without Sponsorship.

The Councils can put together a team to help volunteer in the ReStore as a standard volunteer day. A standard ReStore volunteer day includes one day of volunteering in the Habitat ReStore for up to 12 participants.  Available days are Tuesday-Saturday with shifts available from 9am-1pm or 2pm-6pm on Tuesday-Friday or 10am-2pm or 2pm-5pm on Saturday.
