Campus Chapters

Our Organization

What is a Campus Chapter?

A campus chapter is a group of students who are passionate about helping people build better lives for themselves and are ready to take the next step to lead the charge at their school to help fulfill Habitat’s mission. Each campus chapter is a student-led, student-initiated organization on a high school or college campus that partners with the local Habitat for Humanity to fulfill the four functions of a campus chapter.

Campus chapters are guided by four functions:

  • Direct service
    Campus chapters partner with their local Habitat volunteering on new home construction, rehabilitation, rehab, neighborhood revitalization, and office tasks.
  • Fundraising
    Campus chapters raise funds to support the work of their local Habitat for Humanity and Habitat for Humanity International. Chapters may contribute through various fundraisers in partnership with their local Habitat or toward the tithe program.
  • Advocating
    Campus chapter leaders and members must advocate for affordable housing because building is only one critical piece to answering the need for affordable housing. Being a Habitat advocate means raising your voice to shape policies to serve people in need of decent housing.
  • Educating
    Campus chapters educate others on their campus and in their local community about the importance and need for strong, stable housing and what Habitat does to increase access to housing solutions.
