Bayou Area Habitat for Humanity Charity Profile

The overwhelming need for housing in Lafourche and Terrebonne Parishes has provided us with the opportunity to change lives in our neighborhoods. In our market, Habitat for Humanity is one of the only-affordable homeownership programs that serves families earning less than 50% of income. Cost burden and overcrowding are the most serious problems experienced by many residents. Working with volunteers, families, corporations, congregations, and donors we able to address important housing issues throughout Lafourche and Terrebonne Parishes. We are dedicated to making homeownership possible for low-income, working families.

Under the guidance of God, Bayou Area Habitat's mission is to bring together the resources within the community- the businesses, volunteers, churches and the government--working together to provide decent, affordable housing in partnership with families in need in Lafourche and Terrebonne Parishes.

Bayou Area Habitat for Humanity Volunteer Information

Bayou Area Habitat for Humanity is a volunteer-driven organization. We welcome people from all walks of life to join us as we build simple, decent, affordable houses in partnership with God and families in need. Though the vast majority have no construction experience or building skills, volunteers are involved in most phases of construction. By working side-by-side with the family who will live in the house, our volunteers experience for themselves the joy created when a family is able to realize their dream of home ownership.

We invite volunteers to help us build, assist in the office, work in the ReStore, serve on committees, and help with special projects that benefit the organization. Time commitments vary; some volunteers dedicate every day of the week to Bayou Area Habitat for Humanity and others spend just a few hours each month working on projects or in the ReStore. As a volunteer for Bayou Area Habitat for Humanity, you can choose to volunteer as little or as often as you would like. All of these positions are a tremendous help that directly or indirectly result in the construction of simple, decent homes.
