Rotary and Habitat Partnership

  
 
In October 2017, Rotary International and Habitat for Humanity International announced the two organizations’ formal partnership (https://www.rotary.org/en/rotary-partners-habitat-humanity), as the two reputable humanitarian organizations’ values are very much aligned in serving our communities around the globe. A win-win for both organizations, the collaboration yields numerous benefits at the local level.  Click "Read More" for full details and how your Club can participate and take advantage of this partnership.
For Rotary clubs
  • Expanded opportunities for sustainable and impactful local service projects and meeting programs.
  • Leveraged relevant service opportunities to grow membership, particularly in attracting younger prospective members.
  • Gained networking opportunities with Habitat volunteers and supporters.
For Habitat affiliates
  • Increased resource development opportunities and volunteer pool for affordable home construction sites and ReStore e-commerce and retail operations.
  • Increased skill sets for Blitz build, the complete construction of a new home in nine working days.
  • Enhanced home repair programs, particularly Neighborhood Revitalization and Aging-in-Place programs for lower-income and senior homeowners.
For both
  • Enhanced outreach to the community for advocacy, recruitment, engagement and development.
  • Leveraged partnership success to boost public relations and media presence.
 
On January 9, 2018, the District 7470 leadership team decided to move forward in partnering with local Habitat affiliates.  It has been proposed that an official “Habitat Committee” be added to the new 7475 District on July 1, 2018.
