Through an SHF capacity building grant, Habitat for Humanity of the Mid-Ohio Valley developed and strengthened their volunteer engagement program. With their first Volunteer Coordinator, Habitat increased the number of volunteers on build sites and ramped up volunteer engagement efforts. During the grant period, they completed four houses, finished one house rehab, and began three more homes. 25 individuals are now in safe, permanent housing as a result of these volunteer efforts. Through collaboration with Nonprofits LEAD, Ethos Leadership, and area businesses, Habitat was able to build a more robust volunteer recruitment and engagement process. Thank you, Habitat, for providing safe housing and fostering social connectedness! ... See MoreSee Less
