Habitat awarded $20,000 to expand high school volunteer program
This year Habitat for Humanity of Dane County received a $20,000 grant to expand a successful high school program that provides volunteer opportunities to build affordable housing resulting in dual high school/college credit from the Madison Community Foundation. Habitat is so thrilled to offer school partnership opportunities and turn Habitat build sites into classrooms for students interested in pursuing careers in construction and the trades. Grants like this are possible because of support from Madison Community Foundation’s Community Impact Funds.
