Habitat for Humanity
Saturday, March 1
7:30 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
ICBA is encouraging all members to help empower those in need by spending the day with Honolulu Habitat for Humanity. Founded on the concept of partnership housing, the concept centers on people in need of adequate shelter working directly with volunteers to build simple, decent homes. Habitat for Humanity Honolulu’s mission is to eliminate poverty housing in O’ahu by building decent, affordable homes for working families in their community. Each year hundreds of volunteers help to build homes.
We invite all ICBA members and non-members to join together in partnership with local families to help construct homes for families in need.
The homes built are sold to families in need at no-profit with no-interest loans. The families complete a “sweat equity” requirement in addition to paying for their homes, working side-by-side with sponsors and volunteers to help build their own home and other Honolulu Habitat homes. Additionally, the families complete 60 hours of classroom work, plus homework, training to be good homeowners and learning financial management skills. At the end of the day, ICBA volunteers will present a check to Honolulu Habitat representatives.
Space is limited so please sign up early to be part of this important and impactful project. Breakfast, lunch and transportation will be provided. Please note that volunteers must be at least 18 years old and must wear closed toe shoes. No construction skills are necessary since on-site training is provided.
You may register for Habitat for Humanity as part of your online or print registration.
