can help families build strength, stability and independence
“Not everything that counts can be counted. And not everything that can be counted, counts.” — Albert Einstein
Volunteering is about giving, contributing and helping other individuals and the community. Volunteering means working with others to make a meaningful contribution to a better community.
The value of volunteering cannot only be measured using monetary metrics but the value of our Habitat volunteers runs much deeper than just monetarily. How can we put a monetary value on ordinary people doing extraordinary things here on the Sunshine Coast.
Everyone volunteers for difference reasons. Some people volunteer to expand their networks, work alongside others to gain experience, some to expand their profile but when polling the volunteers at Habitat 95% volunteer to help others, in particular families who are loving on the edge of poverty gain access to their forever homes.
Habitat for Humanity Sunshine Coast was started by volunteers and continues to be lead be volunteers. It is the reason we are so successful.
And we have something for everyone!
