Every year, St. Andrew volunteers team up with Willamette West Habitat for Humanity to help build decent, safe, and affordable homes for individuals and families in the Washington County area. Eight homes were completed and sold dusing a recent cycle, thanks—in part—to the almost 30 people from St. Andrew who volunteered at the worksite.
Typically, a work date for St. Andrew is scheduled and volunteers are recuited to come to the current jobsite. Habitat volunteers do everything from carpentry to unskilled labor such as sorting through and delivery boards and other building material.
In addition to the new homes built, Habitat does "Brush with Kindness" projects. These projects enable low-income homeowners to maintain the safety and livability of their homes by making necessary improvements. Small exterior repairs and painting are common "Brush with Kindness" jobs.
Habitat for Humanity relies on volunteer help and financial support to fulfill its mission of ensuring that more and more low-income people can afford simple, safe housing. If you'd like to participate with the St. Andrew team, please contact Dan Fako.
