Opportunities to Team Build with Co-Workers
Building a Habitat house alongside members of your organization is the perfect opportunity to get to know co-workers beyond your immediate team. Uniting employees in a meaningful way for a common goal will strengthen communication and teamwork, both on our site and back at the office. The shared experience will create lasting memories, and research suggests that participating in volunteer activities outside of the office can help employees recover from work and come back re-energized.
Marketing Your Organization
Building a Habitat house will give your organization a chance to shine in the public's eye. It can show everyone that you are extremely involved in giving back to the community.
Chance to Give Back to San Antonio
As a Habitat house sponsor you have the great opportunity to work with one of the leading nonprofit organizations in San Antonio. Your organization will become part of the positive solution for community revitalization across the city.
Providing Affordable Housing for A Very Low Income Family
Your organization will help build a decent and affordable house for a very low-income family who would not otherwise be able to afford it. You will witness first-hand the dream of home ownership becoming a reality for a hardworking family in need.
Meet Other Habitat Volunteers and Staff on the Worksite
The opportunity to meet and get to know people from all over San Antonio is a great advantage.
Practice and/or Learn Hands-On Practical Building Skills
Whether you are a master carpenter or have never seen a hammer in your life, being a house sponsor and helping build a Habitat house is like no other practical building experience in the world. Habitat provides house leaders who have the experience to manage and guide you through the building of a Habitat house -- whether it is your first house or your fifth.
Chance to Escape from Your Desk Job
What is so nice about building a Habitat house is that it gives you the opportunity to get away from your desk job. Whether you build during the week or on the weekend, you will certainly not go home with eyes that are tired from staring at a computer screen.
