    Purpose:

    Habitat for Humanity is a service organization that builds homes for income qualified families. The Richwood’s chapter has four functions: direct service, fundraising, educating and advocating. Any RHS student can join Habitat for Humanity at any time. Our goal is to have fun while raising awareness and helping support the local Peoria chapter of Habitat for Humanity.

     

    Description:

    All members are expected to volunteer for activities over the course of the year.

     

    Direct service includes volunteering with the Greater Peoria Habitat Chapter on new home construction and volunteering at the local ReStore.

     

    Fundraising may be done at the Richwoods level or in partnership with the Bradley University chapter and or the Peoria chapter. The RHS chapter hosts an activity and craft day for families in the spring, sells baseball concessions and sells candy grams at Halloween.

     

    Educating involves making other students in the school and the community aware of the need for strong, stable housing and what Habitat does to increase access to decent, affordable housing.

     

    Advocating involves speaking to elected officials and those in power in an effort to shape policies to serve people in need of decent housing. Some examples are students may choose to present at a local school board meeting, the city council or write letters to local officials.
