Families in need of a “hand up” partner with Habitat for Humanity to build or improve a place they can call home. Through financial support, volunteering or advocating for the cause, everyone can help families achieve the strength, stability and independence they need to build better lives.
The Brush with Kindness program mobilises teams of volunteers to conduct landscaping and minor repairs to the exterior of homes of people who may be disadvantaged, disabled or socially isolated. It is a ‘backyard blitz’ style activity where teams between 10-15 can get out of the office and get their hands dirty!
The program also partners with other not-for-profits to help provide safe and decent shelter to disadvantaged groups. Habitat can deliver full day activities for teams between 10-15 people within 60 minutes of the Sydney CBD. In Melbourne and Adelaide, teams can expect to take part in building homes for Habitat partner families.
Corporate clients use volunteer days as a chance to give back to the community and provide a team building and leadership development opportunity that rewards and engages employees.
Bookings can be made within 6 weeks’ notice and Habitat for Humanity Aus do ask for a financial contribution to support the day’s resourcing and ensure the sustainability of their programs.
