Habitat for Humanity of Greater Providence is excited to announce its newest college chapter with Roger Williams University. For many years, The RWU Habitat Chapter has been an active contributor to Habitat for Humanity through the support and leadership of the East Bay Habitat affiliate. The four main functions of the chapter include educating the college community about the work and mission of Habitat for Humanity, advocating on behalf of people in need of decent and affordable housing, providing direct service, and raising funds. Both HabitatPVD and the Roger Williams Chapter are looking forward to serving the East Bay and Greater Providence communities.
Mark Kravatz, Executive Director of Habitat for Humanity of Greater Providence, said this about the new partnership, “We are thrilled to recognize our collaboration with Roger Williams University formally. The RWU team has been a long-time contributor to Habitat for Humanity, and now, through this formalized partnership, we will expand our student engagement opportunities through local builds, internships, service-learning, and alternative spring breaks.”
Kravatz added, “With the tremendous commitment and leadership shown by RWU students and staff, we are confident that this partnership will flourish, and we look forward to what’s ahead.”
Emilee Scharler, President of the Habitat for Humanity RWU Chapter, echoed this excitement, saying, “The RWU Habitat for Humanity chapter is very excited to be working with Habitat for Humanity, Greater Providence! It is a great opportunity to bring our members together, do local work, and interact with our community. I look forward to not only providing service for people in need but also bringing everyone together for such a greater purpose.”
