Habitat for Humanity has a vision of a world where everyone has a decent place to live.  We welcome all people to build and repair simple, decent, affordable houses with those who lack adequate shelter. Here at MIT, the Habitat for Humanity club helps fulfill this mission by encouraging members of the community to volunteer with Habitat and by increasing awareness on campus of the global housing crisis.  We hold multiple build days each month, when volunteers spend the day working on building local Habitat homes with our affiliates in the Cambridge-Boston area.  We also go on an annual spring break trip to help on building projects in other parts of the country.  Events like the Beaver Dash raise awareness and funds for Habitat, as well as our hopes to sponsor an MIT Habitat for Humanity home in the Cambridge-Boston area.
