Thank You AmeriCorps Service Members

March 5, 2019

AmeriCorps members at Habitat for Humanity serve a vital role in providing safe, decent, and affordable housing. ​For 23 years, members have been working with Habitat affiliates across the US. To date, over 9,600 AmeriCorps members and alumni have worked with Habitat for Humanity to help build homes and hope across the nation.

Our Americorps team here at Habitat Denver is made up of driven, goal oriented, young leaders whom we are proud to work with. From working alongside our partner families, to teaching volunteers new construction skills, they fill an irreplaceable role at our affiliate. Their experiences serving with AmeriCorps at Habitat speak to the future they are building for themselves and the community.
