Mobilizing more volunteers

Habitat Trenton is able to meet its mission of building quality, affordable homes with those in need through the generosity of volunteers.  The volunteers who support Habitat come from area businesses, civic groups, colleges, churches, and the community at large.

 

Ensuring a brighter future for America's youth

Habitat Trenton realized to build a healthy sustainable community it must also provide community services to area families.  Habitat serves Trenton area youth through The East Trenton Center, a subsidiary of Habitat-Trenton.  The center serves as a community resource for area youth with programs that help address basic life skills as well as enrichment activities. 

 

Engaging students in communities  

Habitat Trenton is fortunate to have several higher learning institutions in close proximity to our focus area.  Students from area schools, colleges and universities, as well as those from alternate education paths join Habitat in its efforts in the Trenton Area.  Bonner scholars from The College of NJ, Rider University, and Mercer County Community College, are actively involved in the Habitat's construction activities as well as activities offered through the East Trenton Center.  Dedicated students from Princeton University, Princeton Theological Seminary, and various college chapters of 

Habitat for Humanity also commit many, many hours toward Habitat's work.

 

 

Harnessing Baby Boomers’ experience 

Habitat Trenton has volunteers ranging from 16 years to 60+.  The affiliate benefits from a contingent of retirees who volunteer on a regular basis.  These volunteers work on the construction site, in the back office, and in the learning center.  Their professional experience combined with their commitment to Habitat provides the affiliate with volunteer leaders.  The greatest benefit is that bonds are formed between the volunteers and residents thus strengthening the community.
