Have you always wanted to learn how to use power tools, build a house, do something for others? Volunteering at Morris Habitat will allow you to do all these things.
Over the past 25 years, Morris Habitat for Humanity (MHfH} has impacted the lives of 213 families locally and globally. In Morris County and surrounding areas, MHfH completed 48 homes and 52 home repair projects which improved the lives of 100+ families. Presently, MHfH is constructing 12 new homes with another 4 housing starts scheduled to begin this year. An additional 8 home repair projects combined with a new Neighborhood Revitalization Initiative will positively improve the living conditions of 30 families over the next year.
One of the critical needs for the organization is volunteers.
Recently the staff and trustees of Morris Habitat held an event at the Park Avenue Club in Florham Park to acquaint attendees about the organization which is one of the charities that benefits from the Park Avenue Club. Hosted by club members Sean and Betsy Monaghan of Chester, Executive Director Blair Schleicher Bravo outlined the vision for 2011 which marks the 25th anniversary of the Morris Habitat for Humanity that has set aggressive growth goals for the next five years – to double the number of homes built each for families and expand their impact through community restoration projects.
