Organization Overview


Randolph-Macon College's Habitat for Humanity Chapter The R-MC Chapter of Habitat for Humanity is an organization that is part of Habitat for Humanity International. Habitat for Humanity International is a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing ministry that seeks to eliminate poverty housing and homelessness from the world, and to make decent shelter a matter of conscience and action. HFHI is constantly fundraising to help supply the building materials used for each home. Habitat for Humanity affiliates work with each family to help finance and arrange no-interest mortgages. Families are selected through a rigorous application process and actually donate their time in helping to construct their own home and others. Their hard work creates ownership for the home and establishes relationships with workers and volunteers that last for a lifetime. The R-MC Habitat for Humanity Chapter goes on builds within the Hanover community. The students dedicate their time, energy and skill to compensate for construction fees. Throughout the year, the R-MC Habitat for Humanity Chapter works with the Hanover Affiliate to fundraise and build homes. The R-MC Chapter also seeks to bring awareness to others about Habitat for Humanity.
