How can youth get involved with Habitat for Humanity?
There are a number of ways in which youth of our community can be involved in carrying out the mission of Fort Wayne Habitat for Humanity. Traditionally, the youth of a church-sponsored Habitat house gather at the construction site before the actual home constructin begins and collaborate to build a storage shed. This shed is used for storage during the building of the home and remains as backyard storage for the Habitat homeowner.
Several areas where youth can contribute are listed below. Other ideas may be possible and should be suggested to Fort Wayne Habitat for Humanity for consideration.
