Save the date: 2019 Kick-Off

By January 16, 2019Events

Most people know that Habitat for Humanity builds houses, but what else do you know about the mission of affordable homeownership? Who do we build for? What, when, and where do we build? Why do we do it? And maybe most important…HOW can you get involved?

Luckily the annual Greater Indy Habitat Kick-Off is coming up this March and is your one stop shop to answer all of these questions and more! Join us on Thursday, March 14, 6:30–7:30 p.m. at DeveloperTown to learn how Habitat builds strength, stability, and independence for families in need of affordable homeownership and discover the many ways you can help!

Attendees will:

  • CELEBRATE the 2018 success of our homeowners, volunteers, and sponsors
  • DISCOVER volunteer opportunities that fit your schedule and passion
  • MEET Habitat homebuyers
  • HEAR about homeowner and neighborhood impact from Jim Morris, president & CEO
  • ENJOY hors d’oeuvres, Sun King drinks, and company among friends

Many of our current supporters became more involved after attending their first kick-off. This includes Meagan Prins, vice president of engagement for our new Habitat Young Professionals group. She shared:

“The greatest advantage to me at the Kick-Off was getting connected with Shana. My number one goal was to find out how to volunteer! …Shana told me all about the young professionals group and invited me to a visionary committee meeting. At the same time, I also loved the excitement of the kick-off event, feeling at home instantly with friendly faces and good food and getting more information on Women Build and other amazing things that Indy Habitat is working on.”

“After that first visionary committee meeting, I was hooked. Now, I am the vice president of engagement for HYP and am so excited to represent putting God’s love into action through volunteering, advocating for affordable housing, and connecting young people to the value of building strong communities. I am constantly astounded at so many aspects of Habitat—everything from the ReStore to the power of homeownership—and as a young professionals group, I think we really want to introduce all of these aspects of the organization to our members and to other groups we collaborate with.”

I would encourage others to attend not only because it was an uplifting and fun event to be a part of, but also because it was a great introduction to Indy Habitat as a whole. Any question that I had regarding all the projects and components of the affiliate could be answered in one place, and with that, I walked away with new interests and ways to get involved.

Spread the word, bring a friend, and get ready to build homes for families, hope for the future, and community in Greater Indy in 2019!
