Veterans Build

What is Veterans Build?

Habitat for Humanity Seattle-King & Kittitas Counties provide volunteer experiences that bring together veterans, military families and their neighbors. These experiences not only help bridge the gap and ease the transition to civilian life with fulfilling community engagement, but also helps build the connections that are crucial to reaching the veteran community with information and resources.

Nearly 4 million veterans pay at least 30% of their income toward rent or mortgage, while more than 1.5 million pay at least 50%. As you can imagine, using half of your income to pay your rent or mortgage is an enormous strain on any budget.

Join us in November 6-9 for our annual Veterans Build to learn, share, and build together, and find out more about how you can help bring homeownership and affordable repairs to veterans in our community.

Volunteer

Veterans Build offers veterans and active-duty service members a profound and local opportunity to unite and make a difference in their own community. Involvement in a Veterans Build project not only allows individuals to utilize and acquire valuable skills but also enables them to pay it forward, contributing to the growth of a family within the community and helping them attain strength, stability, and self-reliance. Help us build a stronger, more resilient community and a brighter future for all. 

To join this year’s Veterans Build, you just need to register! Please login or create a volunteer account here, and register for any available Veterans Build events taking place the week of Nov. 8-11.

Partnership Opportunities

Habitat for Humanity provides a unique opportunity for hardworking families to help build and buy their own homes, a pathway to homeownership that is often appealing to veterans. We work with Washington State Housing Finance Commission approved lenders to provide our homebuyers with an affordable mortgage. If the homebuyer cannot secure a mortgage for the full price of the home, Habitat for Humanity provides financing for the remaining amount.

Additionally, through our Home Repair Program, Habitat provides critical and minor home repairs that alleviate health and safety issues for qualified homeowners in King and Kittitas Counties.

We encourage any veterans interested in either our homeownership or repairs to programs to learn more by visiting buyhabitat.org
