Habitat for Humanity
Habitat Hosts AmeriCorps Volunteers
Fort Collins Habitat for Humanity is pleased to welcome to Fort Collins a team of 14 volunteers from AmeriCorps National Civilian Community Corps (NCCC). This dedicated group of young adults arrived on Nov. 3 and will stay to work on various volunteer activities until Dec. 19, including helping build at Harmony Cottages and projects at the Fort Collins Habitat ReStore.
Consistency is the key in construction, and having a group of this size dedicated to building and serving us for six weeks will help us make significant progress at Harmony Cottages.
The mission of AmeriCorps NCCC is to strengthen communities and develop leaders through direct, team-based national and community service. Members work with nonprofits across the country to complete service projects. The program is a full-time, team-based residential program for men and women ages 18-24. It is “built on the belief that civic responsibility is an inherent duty of all citizens and that national service programs work effectively with local communities to address pressing needs.” This is the team’s first stop on their 10-month commitment to the program. Three local churches – Spirit of Joy Lutheran Church, Plymouth Congregational UCC, and Christ United Methodist – will be lodging the volunteers during their stay.
We have enjoyed welcoming this team to our town!
