Partnerships

hosted by:

Habitat for Humanity Northeast Michigan

Location:

1600 W. Chisholm St., Suite B, Alpena - 49707,MI

Opportunity Description:

Thanks to the generosity of our volunteers, donors and corporate partners, Habitat for Humanity has provided simple, decent shelter for hundreds of thousands of families in need. Our corporate partners’ donations of funds or services help us to continue providing families with homes and the hope of a better life. We are grateful for their kind support.

Reaching out to new audiences
Our mission is to ensure that all people have access to a safe, decent place in which to live. In order to reach that goal we must engage many more people in our work.

Volunteering on a Habitat construction site has proven to be a mighty motivator, but not everyone is capable of supporting our mission through construction. We must also take every opportunity to reach others through presentations and events.
