Tufts Habitat for Humanity works to alleviate some of the local housing insecurity issues through fulfilling and fun community-service events that happen about 5-6 times each semester.
Our mission is to provide an outlet for Tufts students to impact their community in a positive way with Habitat for Humanity Builds and ReStores. At a “build”, we physically work on constructing a home, often alongside the future homeowners, whether it be painting, demolition, or anything else they need. At a ReStore, we help out at Habitat’s secondhand furniture and household item store that donates all funds to Habitat. In addition, we strive to educate the community about wealth inequality and the housing problems in the greater Boston area.
