and people skills

Volunteer groups with companies across the First Coast do so much for HabiJax homeowners. A backbone of the volunteer power that builds safe and affordable homes in our community, companies also step up and contribute financially in ways that keep HabiJax serving more families, even as material costs have risen.

And, with so many groups returning year after year, we know that the Habitat for Humanity volunteer experience does so much for companies! Co-workers can get out of cubicles or remote work environments and sling paint side-by-side. Teamwork skills are honed, and the camaraderie developed on build day keeps on paying dividends for employee job satisfaction and productivity.
