The HPU chapter works 5 minutes from campus helping with homes in our community. We also work with the local ReStore.

We were created to assist Habitat by working with any local affiliate and/or with Habitat’s international headquarters in order to show the love and teachings of Jesus Christ:
a) By working in cooperation with God’s people in need to create a better human habitat in which to live and work;
b) By working with an affiliate to determine collaboration efforts with other agencies and groups which have a kindred purpose;
c) Through loving acts and the spoken and written word;
d) By enabling a growing number of people from all walks of life to take part in this ministry.

Membership Criteria: Anyone is welcome. We hold sign ups and keep track of those who come to our meetings in order to know who our active members are.
