Volunteers Needed

HFHC is nearing completion of homes for two families in Copperopolis. Volunteers from Calaveras and Amador counties are installing kitchens, and completing painting, flooring, and trim work throughout the house. They are assisted by volunteers from across the country provided by the AmeriCorps.

March 10, 2017. St. Clare's Episcopal Church women provide lunch to Americorps volunteers

AmeriCorps places thousands of young adults into service positions where they learn valuable work skills, earn money for education, and develop an appreciation for citizenship. AmeriCorps  members travel the country strengthening communities and developing leadership skills on diverse teams. Members serve full-time for 10 months to address community needs and respond to disasters. AmeriCorps members working in Copperopolis include young people from New York, Texas, Massachusetts and Minnesota.

The two families who will live in the homes are also providing hundreds of hours in sweat equity to complete the homes. This requires extensive work in all parts of the construction.

Habitat still needs volunteers to complete the Copperpolis project.  Any level of skill can be used.  If interested, contact Lisa Peterson at 510 919 6852 or petreher1@yahoo.com.

Even a little girl in Kansas needed some help rebuilding her home after a natural disaster...

Okay, Habitat didn't exist when a tornado took a little girl on a trip. But in reality, when a town in Kansas decided to honor the story of the Kansas girl, they found a suitable house and used volunteer help and material donations to rehab the shabby house into a replica of her home. It is now on display and a proud reminder of what a community can do if they pull together to help each other.

You can do the same right here in Calaveras County. Habitat has several programs to assist your neighbors. Our A Brush With Kindness (ABWK) beautifies homes, Our Critical Home Repair program helps with health and life safety improvements to homes. Our services are provided by volunteers and through generous donations from people like you. You can donate materials, labor (no expericence necessary) or make a cash donation. It doesn't matter how much or how little. Remember, one drop of water isn't much, but thousands of drops will fill the bucket. Take a moment, and go to our volunteer or donation page to help.

A Few Words About Us:  Home ownership is the goal of most people living in America. Contrary to popular belief, Habitat Homes are NOT free! Homebuyers must provide 400 hours of 'sweat equity' and carry a mortgage.

Habitat homebuyers become homeowners and stakeholders in the community. Habitat is a ‘Hand Up’ NOT a ‘Hand Out’. Homebuyers can finally live in their own home, while donors and volunteers are rewarded with the knowledge that their contribution to the local community is helping others live the wonderful lifestyle that Calaveras County offers to all. Communities become stronger with hard working homeowners building a new life full of promise and hope.

Visit our ReStore at 172 California Street in San Andreas, CA for all your gently used building material, appliance, and furniture needs.
