Building UAB’s Habitat House


In October 2014, UAB employees will build affordable housing for La’Tasha Willis and her daughters in the Birmingham neighborhood of Pratt City. Please join us.


Volunteers are the heart and soul of Habitat. Over 15,000 volunteers donate their time saving Habitat Birmingham more than $2 million in labor costs annually. Volunteers participate in construction, and the only requirements are a willingness to serve and to learn. All 600 volunteer opportunities are reserved for UAB employees and students. If you are volunteering through a group, please register through your group coordinator. To volunteer as an individual, please access the Habitat For Humanity volunteer calendar, complete the new volunteer registration if necessary, and enter access code “UAB2014”. Additional information regarding volunteering can be found in the volunteer packet and family profile which includes directions.

Help us reach our Goal!

Full sponsorship of a new house from the ground up through Habitat For Humanity is only $50,000. If every employee donates a minimum additional one time gift of $2.50 to the Benevolent Fund we can build a new house. Help us sponsor our first Habitat House by making your additional pledge to Habitat House sponsored by UAB (581).

Habitat Helps our UAB Family.

In the past 5 years, Habitat For Humanity Greater Birmingham Chapter has built 35 houses for our UAB family including 31 employees and 9 students. Ivory received her Habitat House while completing her degree in Early Childhood Education.
