Tabling Event: 10/8/13
A day of grassroots action to advocate for universal decent housing. The United Nations General Assembly has declared the first Monday in October to be World Habitat Day. This is a time to recognize the basic need for adequate shelter in a world where it is lacking for so many. Join Habitat for Humanity on World Habitat Day.

Homework Help!
We won an award last semester for our Homework Helps!
We will be continuing our Homework Help this semester at the Pierce Street Villas!

ReStore
We have a ReStore in Chatsworth! The more we sell the more homes we can build! It's a supply surplus store where you can find furniture, applicances, and construction materials at an affordable price. As a chapter we volunteer at the ReStore. Stay tuned for our Volunteer date.


Our President Maria shared this link with us to get us talking about how water is linked with Habitat's mission to end poverty. When we say we want affordable adeqaute housing we aren't just saying a house. We mean a sound structure with access to clean water, electricity, and safety.
Check out the video (linked in water.org)!
