Are you or your company, college or church group looking for a way to making a difference while creating a one-of-a-kind and lasting experience for your team members? Habitat’s unique program is being touted as “VolunTourism,” an opportunity for organizations to volunteer, while they have an organizational retreat in one of the most beautiful areas in the country.
It is often typical that team building or corporate retreats are missing the element of valuable contribution. Why not merge the two worlds and give your organization an incredible experience: one that you’ll walk away from knowing you really made a difference – not only for the organizations but for a family and their future.
Habitat for Humanity of Taos fills an important need in the Taos community, where 90% of the population cannot afford to purchase a home. Taos’ average home price is over $300,000, but the median Household income is under $32,000. Most of our home building is done by volunteers, but we do have paid professionals who oversee work, including licensed plumbers, electricians and construction supervisors. To date, Habitat for Humanity of Taos has built 30 homes with 93 family members served, rehabilitated 25 owner occupied homes and are currently working on our 31st home and about to break ground on the 32nd.
It’s not uncommon for our volunteers to tell us “This experience changed my life.” If you would like more information on this unique opportunity, please contact the Habitat for Humanity of Taos office at 575-758-7827.
