Fellowship Opportunity - The Mission Continues
Back to Search Results
Habitat for Humanity of Snohomish County is a growing organization. We are building our 25th home. In the next few years we plan on building 30 more in a neighborhood development program. We were founded in 1991 as an all volunteer organization. Around 2000 we hired our first staff. In 2012 we opened a Habitat Store to provide material and funding for our work,, while creating an opportunity to recycle, re-purpose and reuse house hold goods to our community. In 2015 we opened our second Habitat store. In our 2015-16 fiscal year volunteers gave us almost 9,000 hours of service. We see only growth in our mission and in our need for more volunteers. We also recognize the need to diversify our support and funding sources. In the next 10 years we anticipate adding three more Habitat Stores and developing a home repair/preservation program to serve more people in need and to increase our base of support.
