Building UAB’s Habitat House


Throughout the month of 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! We still need approximately 75 more volunteers to build our house. The only requirements are a willingness to serve and to learn. All volunteers are welcome! We are scheduled to build October 2 - November 8. We will be able to complete the build in 5 weeks if we get most of the volunteer places filled. Please volunteer October 2 - November 1 if possible; though, we want to fill all our places. There is a possibility that volunteers for November 6-8 will be redirected to other work sites. We’d like to complete the build and get the new owners into their house as soon as possible. To volunteer, please access the Habitat for Humanity volunteer calendar, complete the new volunteer registration if necessary, and enter access code “UAB2014” to see the volunteer places available for the UAB House. If you click on "I am scheduling my group," you will see the number of open volunteer places for each volunteer shift. 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.
