AFFILIATES IN MOTION CONFERENCE: AN INVITATION TO HELP
From Service to Shelter: Serving Veterans, Engaging Veterans
Registration is now closed. Please contact Amber Feldpausch for any questions regarding registration.
This year, our annual learning conference highlights and celebrates those who serve or have served our communities and country. Michigan has one of the largest veteran populations in the nation, and Habitat for Humanity is increasing its efforts to meet their housing and community needs. Affiliates in Michigan have risen to that challenge, registering more Veterans Build affiliates than any other state in the US, and increasing their outreach to the veteran community. We have learned that a large percentage of people who reach out to Habitat for Humanity have served, or a member of their family have served in the military. Now that we are informed, according to Sandy Pearson, “It is our moral and ethical obligation to ensure we are identifying military and veteran families, not only to serve them with the right resources but preserve the resources available for non-military families. We have a natural alignment of people serving people.”
Now we want to share the stories and the impacts of veteran initiatives in our state. Your support of our conference helps Habitat affiliates share their experiences, learn best practices from their peers and national Habitat leaders, and network with community partners, all with the intention to increase their impact at home.
Please join us in celebrating and upholding the value of people serving people, coming together in partnership with Habitat for Humanity to build and improve our beloved communities.
