Thousands of local households are living in overcrowded, unsafe, or unaffordable housing.

Habitat for Humanity of Kent County works with individuals and families of all kinds to help everyone build a safe and healthy home base to pursue their dreams.

Volunteers are the heartbeat of Habitat Kent. Everyone can make a difference to help build affordable housing for local families.

No experience, tools, or skills are necessary to participate.  All you need is a great attitude, a willingness to be flexible, and be ready to work.

Join us at Kids' Food Basket

Not all kids have consistent access to nutritious meals. 

Childhood hunger encompasses all of the harmful effects of chronic malnourishment, including the inability to think clearly and function optimally.

Kids’ Food Basket believes healthy food is a right, not a privilege, for every child.

5th Grade Pen Pals with Cesar Chavez

No volunteer opportunity open at this time

The 5th grade students at Cesar Chavez will write about their family, school, and interests and we get to write them back!  We will send one letter a month with a toal of 4-5 letters.  The pen pals are to encourage the students to think about their future and explore career options.

This program means a lot to the students because it motivates them to engage in their writing skills and connect with people in their community.  It also helps with social skills, creativity, and building self-confidence.
