Every day in communities across the United States, hundreds of AmeriCorps (pronounced Ameri-core) members work locally with Habitat for Humanity, helping volunteers and families address the very real need for safe and affordable housing.
These members are part of a network of more than 11,000 AmeriCorps who have contributed more than 18 million hours towards Habitat’s mission since the inception of the national service program in 1994.
These members take on year-long appointments with local affiliates, and receive a stipend for service in addition to receiving on-the-job training. AmeriCorps members use their unique experiences and knowledge to help serve communities throughout the country. Some work behind the scenes recruiting volunteers, designing programs, and raising money. Others can be found on build sites pouring concrete and raising walls alongside future homeowners and leading local volunteers.
