My story

We are Habitat Young Professionals (HYP) of Seattle, WA, an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity Seattle-King County. HYP encourages all levels of participation from its members, and offers a variety of volunteer opportunities to appeal to just about anyone. Currently, HYP offers monthly build days at Habitat job sites and occasional volunteer days at the Home Improvement Outlet.

HYP is aimed at mobilizing Seattle area young professionals to aid Habitat for Humanity Seattle-King County's mission to eliminate poverty housing. By combining time, resources and talents; HYP aims to help address the region's need for affordable housing. In King County, only 20% of the housing stock is affordable to households below 80% of area median income. Habitat for Humanity is changing this: since 1986, Habitat for Humanity of Seattle/South King County has completed over 150 homes in partnership with area families.

Seattle has a very diverse population of socially conscious young professionals who share a common desire to give back to the community. HYP brings resourceful young professionals together through coordinated fundraising, marketing, volunteerism, community involvement, and social networking events. This motivated group of volunteers impacts Habitat not only in the present, but for generations to come by cultivating lifelong donors and developing future leaders within its ranks.

As many of you are aware, Habitat strives to provide affordable housing not only locally but globally as well. Ten percent of funds raised for Habitat for Humanity Seattle-King County are tithed to support Habitat for Humanity's international home building efforts. Since Habitat reach is global, HYP is working to provide opportunities to attend Habitat builds domestically as well as internationally through global village trips.
