Morris Habitat Encourages Young People To Join Americorps

Make a difference in people’s lives while living within easy access of both New York City and the Appalachian Trail. Over the past 30 years, Morris Habitat has successfully served 400 families through home ownership and repair. In the next three, it plans to serve at least 200 more. But it’s not enough. Right now, 816 names are on a mailing list wanting help. Their stories are heartbreaking. Volunteers are needed to build and rehab even more!

As an AmeriCorps Construction Crew leader, individuals are integral part of building homes and better neighborhoods in the service area. This might include hands on construction tasks such as demolition, site prep, framing, insulation, drywall, flooring, roofing, finish carpentry and landscaping. One might be working with new and gut rehab homes, as well as A Brush With Kindness (ABWK), Critical Home Repair (CHR) and weatherization projects.

At the end of the service year, gain new skills and expertise, developed new relationships, and maybe even become a member of a new community.
