The five pillars of Veterans Build

 

Build

Safe, quality, affordable housing is the centerpiece of Veterans Build. This includes programs to repair and maintain homes and make them more energy-efficient and affordable.

Educate

We train Habitat employees and community volunteers to better understand military culture. This increases our effectiveness in interaction with veterans and military families.

Employ

We value skill sets gained from military service. We recruit veterans to work at Habitat as employees, board members, extended volunteers, National Service members, and interns.

Engage

Veterans want to give back. They volunteered in the first place and now they want to continue their volunteering and have the opportunity to give back to their community.

Honor

Throughout the year, we participate in and host special events that pay tribute to veterans, mobilize volunteers by raising awareness through advocacy.
