Building Homes – Building Community – Building Hope – Building Teams
Whether your company, organization or individual employee group is looking to “build” a better team or participate in a memorable, structured “community service day,” Habitat for Humanity Detroit’s Adopt-A-Day is a fun single-day event.
Perfect for smaller-sized companies, organizations or departments, this group activity enables participants to rally around a common cause, working together in group collaboration activities, helping to revitalize Detroit, and building lasting memories as a team.
Currently, two out of every five homes surveyed in Detroit is considered sub-standard or poverty housing. With your help, we will be able to offer much-needed assistance to residents in these target neighborhoods. While securing affordable homeownership for low-income families is at the heart of the Habitat mission, Habitat Detroit has undertaken a new initiative that will help fund Critical Home Repairs (CHR) and Primary Home Repairs (PHR) for low-income homeowners.
- Your Adopt-A-Day sponsorship helps fund much needed CHR’s and PHR’s, such as dilapidated porches and stairs, broken windows, railings, inoperable doors, inadequate roofs, furnace replacements, and various other issues associated with structural safety and energy efficiency. On average, these repairs can cost anywhere from $15,000 to $45,000 per home on materials alone.
- When you Adopt-A-Day, your team will work together to spruce up public spaces such as alleys and parks, boarding up vacant homes, painting over graffiti, building benches, and some basic gardening and landscaping. We request a minimum contribution of $100 per volunteer per day for a single sponsor event of 15+ volunteers. We can accommodate smaller groups for a minimum contribution of $1500. We will provide lunch and Habitat Detroit t-shirts for everyone in your group. We will work with you to select a date that fits your schedule best.
Your gift can make the difference between a family living in sub-standard housing and impoverished conditions, and living in a safe, decent, affordable home, which they now own. Your assistance can help revitalize neglected communities. Positive changes occur within Habitat families and all our lives will be changed for the better. We hope that you will join us in our mission!
