The House that Youth Built
What it is:
The House that Youth Built is a youth based service project that engages schools and youth organizations from across our service area to help raise the funds needed to help a family in need have a home or return home after a disaster. Our 1st youth build project was a huge success in helping the Henn family of Port Monmouth/Middletown, NJ re-build their Hurricane Sandy damaged home. Our 2nd project is currently underway, building a new home for a Family of Long Branch, NJ.
Project Goal: the goal is simple!
• Help Raise $50,000 to help bridge the funding gap needed to build a new home
Project Timeline: Now - July 31, 2016
Previous Project Background Information:
The Henn family is a low-moderate income family who lost their home as a result of Hurricane Sandy. The family consists of a widowed grandmother raising her 18 year old granddaughter Katari. Katari, as a little girl, suffered the tragedy of losing her mother. Although with the help, love and support of her grandmother, Katari is a recent graduate of Middletown High School North.
About their Home:
As a result of the damage caused by Hurricane Sandy their house was deemed unsafe and unlivable. For two years, the family had been displaced. Without having enough money to re-build their home, the family stayed in a one bedroom apartment in Keansburg, NJ.
With the Help of generous donors and volunteers, HFHMC was able to raise the funds needed to complete the Henn family home on time and within budget.
How Your School/Organization Can Help the a Deserving Family:
• Spread the word to neighboring schools and youth groups in your community about our program so that they can participate in the project!
• Plan your own fun and exciting fundraising event (or series of events) that will help raise funds needed to contribute toward the goal. The staff at Habitat for Humanity has lots of great fundraising ideas that you can incorporate into your campaign such as the Nickels for Nails and Dollars for Doors Campaign. Please contact Laura Lella-Smith, Director of Operations at (732) 728-0441, ext. 302 or email@example.com for more information.
• If ten schools can raise $5,000 each our goal will be complete and you will have just helped return a family to their home!
